We’re are a small family business from Dumfries in Scotland, and we have a passion for great tasting artisan chocolate. We hand craft using age old, skilled techniques. Using our own special recipes, we blend the raw ingredients, hand table across a granite slab to develop flavour and texture, before hand-pouring and hand wrapping. Every bar is a real labour of love. Freedom Chocolate is a raw chocolate that is suitable for EVERYONE – including Vegans and Allergy Sufferers.
We also have a passion for Ethical Chocolate. It has been well documented that the chocolate industry has massive issues with slavery and human trafficking (mostly children), particularly in many African nations. Many of the big chocolate manufacturers are aware of this and ignore the issue whilst making huge profits. We work very hard to source our raw cacao ingredients from reputable, ethical suppliers and will always continue to do so.
Why a Free From Chocolate?
We are the Wood family and Freedom Chocolate was born out of our family’s experience of struggling with food allergies and intolerances. We understand how difficult it is when family members are excluded from enjoying the same delicious treats as everyone else. There is a growing demand for a more universal chocolate and our experience is that there is a lack of high-quality chocolate options available for those with special dietary requirements. Those that are available are often not suitable for those with multiple allergies and often they are not enjoyed by mainstream chocolate lovers. That is why we want to champion a truly inclusive chocolate experience. One that can be enjoyed by the whole family, in total Freedom from barriers arising from moral choices and dietary needs.
