We’re delighted to welcome Angus Thirlwell, co-founder of premium chocolate brand 'Hotel Chocolat', to our first networking event of the Autumn. WHAT IS HOTEL CHOCOLAT? Hotel Chocolat is a British chocolatier that encompasses a new type of chocolate company, connecting luxury chocolate making and retailing with cocoa growing – it is one of the world’s few chocolate makers to actually grow cocoa. Hotel Chocolat remains a privately owned company with the original co-founders still very much involved. With his grandmother’s patisserie shop and his father’s ice cream business, Angus has speciality food retailing hard-wired into his genes. A childhood spent in theCaribbean, home to some of the world’s best cocoa, kindled a love for cocoa and this region - which would later lead to the purchase of a cocoa estate there. A further influence was the two years spent living and working inFrancewhere his reverence for real food was further developed.
