This chocolate making business course focuses on the practical set up of your chocolate making business from home. Although we will not be actually making any chocolate, you will be able to taste and explore all the raw chocolate we use and our final chocolate products. You will also have the opportunity to see all our equipment and ingredients to help you to decide what to purchase yourself.
If you are completely new to chocolate making, we have other courses that focus just on 'hands-on' chocolate making and here is the list to guide you through.
Our chocolate making business courses are exclusively run by Magdalena Marsden who established her business in 2011 following a life long passion with chocolate. Magdalena's work background and experience (Managing Director and Operation's Director) helped her to set up, now very succesful chocolate making business.
Our workshops are deliberately run in small groups to allow you to get the most of your day, ask as many questions as you like.
