At the Wellington Chocolate Factory we make organic, ethically traded, bean-to-bar chocolate of the highest quality. We founded WCF to be a leader in the new chocolate revolution, exploring how artisan production methods, fair trading practice, and local communities can reinforce each other in building a strong, sustainable business. Also, because we love delicious authentic chocolate!
We are obsessed with, and one hundred percent serious about, making the best bean-to-bar chocolate in the world. This includes:
- Using only the finest ingredients – most of the world’s industrial chocolate makers use Forastero cocoa beans, a hardy varietal that is bred for consistent yields. We source rare, highest-quality Criollo and Trinitario beans from select plantations across the world, and use only Paraguay Manduvira sugar
- Letting the flavours ring out – our artisan production process, led by Master Chocolatier Rochelle Harrison, unlocks the distinct flavours in exotic cocoa varietals rather than hiding them with additives. Our single-origin chocolates contain just two ingredients, beans and sugar
- Vibrant packaging by local artists that captures the unique story behind each bar
- The full under-one-roof experience – our factory store premises are a beautiful place, filled with the smells, sights and sounds of chocolate production, staffed by the people who make the food.
We are committed to sustainability across all levels of our business, and see this as an active competitive advantage. This includes being 100% Fairtrade and organic certified, building direct connections and relationships with cocoa farmers, and using environmentally sustainable practices in our workplace.
Every bar has a story to tell, and it’s all good!!
