A SPECIAL cargo of chocolate arrived at Rococo Chocolates after a 6,000- mile, six-week sea voyage from Grenada to Chester.
The limited-edition dark chocolate bar has been introduced at the Rococo Chocolates concession at The Chester Grosvenor.
Rococo sources its cocoa from Grococo – a Fairtrade organic cocoa farm run as a joint venture between Rococo and the Grenada Chocolate Company.
Rococo founder Chantal Coady and Mott Green, founder of the Grenada Chocolate Company, gave a talk to shoppers in the Chester shop about the 26,000 bars of award-winning chocolate, weighing more than five tonnes.
The audience learned the story behind the chocolate’s transition from the cocoa bean harvest on a Caribbean farm to its transportation across the Atlantic.
Chantal said: “The profits from the sale of the limited edition bar will be put back to the support the radical organic cocoa co-operative in Grenada.” .
Rococo chocolate will be featuring in gourmet lunches and dinners held in the Michelin-starred restaurant Simon Radley at The Chester Grosvenor.
