We are delighted to share with you our chocolate making story at the York Cocoa Works.
At the York Cocoa Works you can watch our chocolate makers at work, taste chocolate fresh from the manufactory, and take home a piece of the Chocolate City from our Chocolate Shop. Why not indulge further by enjoying our selection of our own drinks and desserts, made with our own delicious chocolate, at the York Cocoa Works cafe?
Join us and discover how our chocolate is created and to explore the flavour of cocoa from around the world, by sampling and seeing the chocolate being produced by us in the heart of the Chocolate City. We are proud to be contributing to York’s rich chocolate heritage; in fact, we are just opposite Mary Tuke’s 18th Century Chocolate manufactory!
We are also proud of our mission: to create shorter, fairer, more connected supply chains. We have worked with cocoa communities and traders from around the world to identify cocoa that we believe furthers our mission. Our Cocoa has been chosen because it makes a sustainable impact and it rewards farmers based on quality as well as quantity.
