Chocolate Chat with Bruce Alexander, Montezuma's Chocolates

Chocolate Chat with Bruce Alexander, Montezuma's Chocolates

Our guest on our 2nd insta live was Bruce Alexander, MD of Montezuma's Chocolates.

Montezuma's was founded back in 2000 by Simon and Helen Pattinson.  Two ex-lawyers who took a sabbatical to South America and fell in love with cacao and the rest is history.  Suffice to say they didn't return to the law - could you ever after experiencing cocoa?!

They built their artisan chocolate business up from one shop in Brighton to shops over the UK, supplying major supermarkets, health food stores and attracting Edinburgh investment firm, Inverleith, to take a majority stake in 2018.
