Small Company, Big Success!
The family-run, Mortimer Chocolate Company is celebrating after beating multi-national competition to win a Highly Commended in the 2018 Quality Food Awards.
The company received its award in the hot beverage category for its Salted Caramel Chocolate Drink, following a blind tasting by industry experts. The awards, recognise excellent new product development, are dominated by big businesses, with their large R&D budgets.
Adrian Smith, managing director of Mortimer Chocolate said: “It is great to beat such tough opposition as Aldi and Typhoo. We have a tiny budget, but we aim to get our drinks just how our customers like them and this award shows us that we’ve done just that!”
Mortimer Chocolate Company is a small, UK chocolate producer, that specialises in producing chocolate drinks, available on-line through Amazon, in local outlets through the Thames Valley and in cafes across the country.
“It is our attention to the flavour of the drink and the quality of the cocoas that we use that makes our chocolates stand out,” adds Adrian. “Our customers are always telling us how much they love our products and this award reinforces that!”
