What or who is the inspiration behind your startup? 

Our journey spans back to the innocent dreams of two sisters in their adolescence. It was always such a joyous moment receiving chocolates as gifts, especially when our grandmother would sneak a chocolate bar or two into our hands. But there came a time when we had tried every flavour and brand available, and yearned for something more. It was on that day that we made the decision of taking it upon ourselves to deliver a unique and special chocolate delicacy to others when we grew older. After years of experimenting with flavours and textures, and with equal parts of passion, simplicity, and energy, we set about building a decadent array of quality hand-made chocolates. As the years have passed, we have refined our skills and developed our premium line of chocolates. 

Who is your hero, the one you aspire to be? 

We aspire to be one of the most sought-after luxury chocolate company in the UAE. Hotel Chocolat is one of our inspirations. We would like to expand our business by introducing new flavours that tantalise taste buds and providing a wider range of chocolates. 

Why your company the “best thing since sliced bread”

The phrase, “Life is like a box of chocolates”, resonates deep in our thought process and our motto. The social aspect of giving gifts and the pleasure that is expressed across all ages alike when receiving a box of chocolates, is what drives our passion to excel in our business.  

Our commitment to quality, our down-to-earth family culture, and our pure love for all things chocolate makes our business stand out.  

What is your favourite chocolate and why?

As chocolate lovers, we find it so difficult to pick one favourite! Each individual chocolate offers a different taste guaranteed to satisfy your palette. Some days, we are in the mood for our rich truffles filled with various nuts and chocolate, other days we prefer the luxurious signature pieces. And you can never go wrong with one of our wrapped delicacies!  

What lessons have you learned along the way that you would like to share with other FoodPreneurs?  

Our dream has definitely become a reality thanks to our wonderful team! The process of producing a single piece of chocolate is long and tedious; and chocolate can be quite tricky to work with. But we take a lot of care to ensure the flavours are perfect. The process is long, but the results are fantastic if you’re passionate about all things chocolate!
