Scotland is no stranger to chocolate and familiar names such as Lees and Tunnocks have for many years thrived on Scotland’s love of chocolate and other confectionery. What is strange is the emergence of small independent chocolate makers here is Scotland who are building innovative business through the creation of handmade chocolate and designer confection.

As our contribution to National Chocolate Week we have listed just a few of our favourites. (see below)
