We were absolutely shocked and delighted to win the Innovation award at the Scottish SME Business Award 2018! We’re not sure who nominated us, but we would like to say a massive thank you to them and to all our customers and supporters who have made this possible.
We have been trading for just over a year, so to win this award so early on is a huge deal for us.
Our chocolate has several unique features which are intimately linked to our key innovations:
1) Manipulating sugar composition – our ingredients are carefully selected to minimise the amount of added sugar needed for our chocolate to remain satisfyingly sweet.
2) Added protein: Proteins are digested into amino acids, “the building blocks of life”. By replacing sugar with whey protein we dramatically improve our chocolate’s nutritional profile.
3) High cocoa content: Cocoa contains powerful antioxidants called flavanols. By significantly increasing the cocoa content we increase our chocolate’s flavanol content, thus making it healthier.
