Bare Bones Chocolate is a micro-batch, bean to bar chocolate company based in Glasgow. Chocolate enthusiasts Cameron and Lara wanted to create a brand that was built on incredible chocolate with impeccable detail through every process. Their chocolate is made in their workshop in the centre of Glasgow, in batches of around 30kg at a time.
"We want to build a sustainable brand that can make a difference in the chocolate and food scene. We want to share our fascination for cacao with our customers and demonstrate how incredible it can taste – without soya lecithin, vegetable fats, additives or E-numbers. Chocolate should be pure, delicious and ethical. Honouring the farmers, the cacao and the maker."
All packaging is sourced from inside the UK from recycled sources and which can be recycled or composted after eating. Their beautiful boxes are made using recycled paper coffee cups and wrappers are plant-based from Vegware.
Since launch, Bare Bones have won numerous awards, including International Chocolate Awards and Great Taste Awards. Lara and Cameron were awarded the UK Rising Star Award in 2020 by the Academy of Chocolate.
