The city of York was once known as the Chocolate City. The air would smell of cocoa and a thick chocolate dust would cover every surface as it erupted from the city's factories.

Companies like Craven, Rowntree and Terry's were more than just a workplace, in York they were a way of life that contributed so much to the city and the chocolate industry that from York spread around the world. 




We're proud to be following in the footsteps of York's pioneering chocolate makers. We opened York Cocoa Works in 2018 to bring York's chocolate making journey full circle and invite you to join us in our working, making, learning chocolate manufactory. 


Visiting us at York Cocoa Works you'll see our chocolate making process from the cocoa beans we source from our farms and communities around the world through the roasting and making process into the chocolate products that we craft to share.
