When you're as small as we are - a team of one and a half - it's amazing to receive external recognition for the time you've spent crafting each bar.
We are humbled and incredibly proud, of each of our awards.

Silver - Packaging
In 2019, when we entered our single-origin 70% range, we had no idea that every entry was automatically included in a packaging award section - we were thrilled (and surprised) to be told we had been awarded a Silver, especially because we design and illustrate all of our packing ourselves.

Brand Experience Award - Overall Trophy
This was only the second time this trophy had ever been awarded, and every entry was in 
contention for this award. We were utterly blown away to win it.

The award celebrates the pleasure of chocolate as a complete moment-by-moment experience, from attractive functional packaging to outstanding chocolate. Incredible recognition to receive, especially in our very first year of Foundry.
