About Mendip Chocolate Chef

Handmade Artisan Chocolate Treats to Give a Pure Indulgent Chocolate Experience

For us, chocolate is about pure indulgence, and sharing with friends and family (at least sometimes!) But not just any chocolate, chocolate that leaves you satisfied and makes your taste buds dance!

Our packaging is plastic free and we always aim for zero waste. Let's face it, that's not so hard when it comes to chocolate! Any short dated product or seconds usually go to local food banks.

We also like to support fellow small UK businesses. That's why we use as many other small businesses & UK Sellers for ingredients, packaging, stationary and basically whatever we viably can.

During 2021, we have not only won a Taste of the West Award for our Fudgaholic Milk Chocolate Slab, but we have received Chocolatier of the Year at the South West England Prestige Awards 2021.

Head chocolatier, Louise, started making chocolate started when she was only 12 years old after a visit to a local chocolate factory and since then, chocolate & food have been a passion. She began making chocolates professionally in 2010 and has never looked back. She loves to experiment with new chocolate flavours, twists on classic favourites and new combinations.

Plastic Free Packaging

All of our packaging is plastic free. Our 'bags' and stickers are compostable and everything else in our brand is recyclable.
We care about what is happening to our planet and want to set an example of how it is possible to go plastic free. 
Our suppliers are chosen carefully to ensure they share our ethos, and we operate a zero waste policy.

Doing our bit for the planet where we can.

Vegan Friendly
Range

We want everyone to be able to experience our chocolate

Back in August 2020, we launched our vegan range and we haven't looked back. With fun interesting flavours so there is no compromise to your tastebuds.
We always make our vegan range after a full clean down in our kitchen, and usually on different days to the other products to ensure there is no cross contamination.

COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING
Not only is our vegan range packed with flavour, but we have invested in packaging that is a little kinder to the world.

The bags we use, you can put them into your compost heap or veggie recycling box and they will compost in around 30 days.
If you buy a hamper or gift pack from us, we use 'shredded wood' which not only looks pretty but you can use it after as a fire starter for your BBQ or recycle it.
Even the paper we use to wrap products in and the postal box packaging is fully recyclable and made from recycled materials.
