Inspired by my great-great-great grandfather John Cadbury, I created Love Cocoa with the purpose of making great tasting chocolate bars here in Great Britain, in a way that's loved by you, the planet, and its people.
CLIMATE POSITIVE CHOCOLATE
Join our mission to make chocolate consumption more sustainable. The mainstream chocolate industry is shrinking our rainforests and seriously contributing to global warming. The problem begins right at the source: with the farming of the humble cocoa bean. We aim to tackle this problem head on by planting one tree for every product sold. Together we can create a fairer, more sustainable chocolate industry.
CHOCOLATE RUNS IN THE BLOOD
A PROUD CADBURY HISTORY
The inspiration behind Love Cocoa comes from founder James Cadbury's, great-great-great grandfather John Cadbury, who setup Cadbury chocolate nearly 200 years ago.
The philanthropist built Cadbury on great ethical grounds, looking after its workforce and improving civil rights.
1985 - James Cadbury is born. His family are no longer involved in the chocolate business with his family known for their generosity and philanthropy.
2010 - Cadbury becomes part of Mondelēz International after a hostile takeover and controversy. The much loved British firm is now in hands of the American owners who make a number of promise including that to keep open British factories. Within weeks of the takeover going through, Kraft announced it was going to close the Somerdale factory. Four hundred jobs were lost.
2016 - Love Cocoa is launched in July 2016 built on the principles of the ethical company Cadbury originally was.
2017 - Love Cocoa gain first listings at Fortnum & Mason's, 100 years after they stocked the original Cadbury products.
