The inspiration for Love Cocoa came from Founder James Cadbury's great-great-great grandfather John Cadbury, who set up Cadbury chocolate nearly 200 years ago.

A philanthropist and anti-slavery campaigner himself, John Cadbury built his company on great ethical grounds, looking after its workforce and improving civil rights. These same ethical values remain at the heart of Love Cocoa today.

The story behind Love Cocoa


The idea for the business came on his mother's birthday when James couldn't find an online service to deliver chocolate the next day that would fit through the letterbox.

James launched Love Cocoa in July 2016, and built on the principals of the ethical company Cadbury originally was. The following year Love Cocoa gained its first listings at Fortnum & Mason's, exactly 100 years after the store stocked the original Cadbury products.


Today, James continues to enjoy making British chocolate great again. The chocolate itself is manufactured in a family-run British factory that sources fair trade and organic cocoa from farmers in Columbia and Peru.

James also holds a passion to combat problems rife within the cocoa industry such as deforestation, cocoa farmer poverty and human rights abuses, and has partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects, planting a tree for every product sold.
