- Organic Milk Chocolate (Cocoa Solids 54%, Sugar, Whole Milk Powder, Vanilla and Soya Lecithin)
Ex-lawyers turned chocolate entrepreneurs, Helen and Simon Pattinson, founded Montezuma’s in 2000 with one little chocolate machine and one shop in Brighton.
Mad About Chocolate
When Montezuma's husband and wife founders Helen and Simon Pattinson left lives as City lawyers they never imagined that in 2007 they would have founded one of the UK's most talked about quality chocolate companies.
Today Montezuma's have a fantastic production and retail team working hard to make Montezuma's the UK's leading quality chocolate maker. As Rick Stein said about us "food obsession at its best".
The difference between good, bad and ugly foods depends largely on the quality of the constituent ingredients and chocolate is certainly no exception.
We take great pride in sourcing and using only the finest ingredients; from Dominican Republic cocoa beans we consider to be the world’s best to fine and dark Madagascan vanilla.
Since the first moment on the first day of the first shop, we saw the reaction of our customers to the small range of chocolates and knew we had done something right and the risk was worth it.
Along the way we have had many great products, some OK products and some awful failures. But we have never been scared of experimenting and listening to our customers.
