Vegan Chocolatier Be Chocolat!
Be Chocolat has opened on Duke Street. The shop stocks vegan and gluten free chocolate!
The family business makes their chocolate fresh everyday in store. So customers can see what they are going to eat being made in the window!
This gives them the opportunity to make chocolate to order and then give direct feedback, making it the best it possibly can be.
It is run by Michel Clement and his wife Titus, daughter Gina and her husband James.
James told the Argus; “If you come in and say you want this chocolate with this ingredient, for example dark with nuts, we’ll make it for you. We can customise anything.”
This makes everything extremely high quality, the cocoa is shipped from Indonesia, Ghana and Sao Tome. And all their packaging is made from recycled waste paper.
They are joining some big names in the chocolate industry on that road such as Hotel Chocolat, Julien Plumart and Montezumas. But James says they aren’t competing with any of the other chocolate shops because they can’t be compared due to their different approaches.
