Business Description

Hello and thanks for looking.

From 2001 to 2014, I ran a chain of chocolate shops in the UK. So, I know the suppliers very well indeed.

Recently, I decided to dip back in and I developed a range of 85g traditional and no-added sugar chocolate bars. I did this by-

(1) I knew a manufacturer of good quality bars (in Belgium – They speak great English) Belgian chocolate gives the brand an excellent marketing presence.

(2) I created a good brand name and logo, with a contemporary design for the bars. I approached a design agency who worked with me to create the finished packaging product.

(3) I then had samples made to show buyers and I wrote a selling pack. So, everything is ready to go.

(4) For a later date, there’s a 45g option, too.

I have other projects on the go and I just do not have time to go out and sell them. The project is 95% ready to go. If you are good at sales, then this might be for you.

To drive this forwards, you will need to find customers. Then have the packaging en-mass printed (you can still change what I did, if you like) and the bars made. This is actually straightforward. The two companies work with each other and I will introduce you. Then you need get the bars picked up and shipped to the customer. Marketing wise, I’ve always used Belgium. In front of buyers, when you say the name, there’s an instant acknowledgement that they taste great and have been made properly.

Also included is a website and email address.

There’s good margin in this. I was looking at roughly doubling my costs to get to a whole sale price, still leaving space for a retailer to add their standard margin. This is very healthy indeed.

You will only need to order stock when yo have an order, so rest assured, you will not be sitting on stock going out of date (24 months for dark, 12 months for milk)

You do not need any manufacturing experience. Just a love of chocolate!!!

This would be a good business for someone with lots of enthusiasm but lacks an idea. This is the idea. I will pass on everything that I have done so far plus some advice, if you want/need it.

I am open to have a discussion with this opportunity. Nothing lost at all….
