Would you like to turn a hobby into a business?
In 2010 Kitty Chim and Nick Sharp decided to turn their love of chocolate into a business by combining it with their hobbies of cooking, growing their own fruit and veg and beekeeping. They wanted to create something special using their home grown produce as well as other exotic ingredients. The result – the creation of Chocolate Fusion – operating from a converted barn at their home in west Wales.
Last year, the couple desperately needed tempering equipment to cope with the demand for the chocolate.
“Business Wales guided us through the grant application procedure in order for us to purchase the necessary equipment” said Kitty.
Recognising that the support they received has been invaluable to the growth of the business they are now looking once again to Business Wales for advice in order to invest further by procuring additional equipment.
