Lauden Chocolate was born out of frustration by their owners not being able to buy fine chocolate where they live. They would regularly visit some fantastic Chocolatier with a great shopping experience and customer service but their taste buds were more than often left unsatisfied. To the owners, Sun and Stephen, “It’s all about the Chocolate!” so they decided to make their own.
They spent all their spare time learning, researching ingredients and refining their chocolate palate. They wanted to find the finest Cacao in the world, to make the finest chocolates in the world. A tall order, but one they are certainly on the road to success with when they won Bronze at the Academy of Chocolate Awards in 2009 in the category of Best Dark Truffle (unflavoured). "It’s all about the chocolate!".
Lauden believe the chocolate industry is going through a revolution as the consumer starts to recognise and look for fine tasting chocolates, rather than the high sugar low quality chocolates that are available everywhere. Much like Sun and Stephen today, people want chocolate with character, depth and lasting taste - much like a good quality bottle of wine, and once you have tasted the finest you cannot go back.
Sun - "It’s all about balancing fine ingredients with one another to produce the best chocolate! Just because you are using the finest ingredients does not mean you will produce the best products. It is the marriage of these ingredients that produces the best!"
