How to store your chocolate:
Our chocolate is heat sensitive, and we recommend that you keep your chocolate at room temperature in a cool, dry place, away from sunlight.
What is chocolate blooming?
This term is used when chocolate appears to have dust or streaks across the surface. There are two types of blooming. Fat bloom usually has grey or white stripes on the chocolate’s surface that have a greasy feeling. When chocolate is exposed to warmer temperatures, the cocoa butter in the chocolate will soften and separate from the other ingredients. Once the cocoa butter rises to the surface and re-solidifies, it will create a fat bloom. Fat bloom is the most common type of chocolate blooming and can be misunderstood for chocolate appearing to be old, mouldy or out of date.
What is sugar bloom?
Sugar bloom occurs when the sugar crystals in chocolate are affected by moisture. For example, suppose chocolate is stored in damp conditions such as humidity or subject to condensation from refrigeration. In that case, it will cause the sugar in the chocolate to dissolve and come to the surface.
General Information And Requests
Do you allow factory tours/visits?
As a co-manufacturer of private label products, our utmost responsibility is to maintain our customers’ privacy and brand integrity.
Access into our factory is strictly limited to a need-to-know basis, associated with a job or assignment only. Any unauthorised disclosure could result in a Breach of Contract with co-manufacturers. Unfortunately, we have recently signed an unannounced audit agreement with co-manufacturers. This thereby indicates that any of our co-manufacturers may audit our site at any given time without giving us prior notice. With this in mind, we can no longer accommodate factory visits and tours.
We hope you will understand our situation and respect our inability to fulfil your request.

Sponsorships and Donations
Our company and its employees are proud to support various important causes. Unfortunately, we receive many more inquiries than we can consider.
We are passionate and deeply committed to developing South African youth, and we have taken a focused approach to identify certain educational projects. One such initiative is the Johannesburg Culinary and Pastry School, which trains and develops productive, independent, and employable chefs. Students are offered affordable quality education which allows them an opportunity to have on-the-job training while they study. The objective of the support is to promote sustainable access for the beneficiaries to the economy in the form of income-generating activities. Considering the above, we will unfortunately not be able to contribute any extra worthy causes.
