New products at The Crieff Food Co
The Cocoabean Company is a family-run chocolate factory and visitor attraction based in Dumfries and Galloway. The company was founded in 2005 by Claire Beck and with a passion for chocolate and a background in new product development, she began making chocolates in her kitchen, using her AGA to melt chocolate.
Claire’s innovative and refreshing approach to chocolate making, coupled with the quality of the chocolate used in all the products ensured that what started as a hobby soon became a business in its own right. They produce a wide range of luxury chocolates and confectionery – all handcrafted using traditional methods, to the highest standards.
