Chocoloza was founded by Vicki Bain, an environmental and sustainability consultant in a previous life but 14 years in Belgium turned her into a homesick chocolatier. After qualifying as a chocolatier and pastry chef she worked for arguably one of the best artisanal chocolatiers in Belgium, Demeestere, as well as one of the biggest and best-known, Neuhaus. But there is no place like home, and so Chocoloza was born.

I’ve tasted beautiful Belgian chocolates made with bad ingredients, or made in a rush or without appreciation for the craft. That’s not what Chocoloza is about. We want to combine the best of both worlds – Seriously Belgian but also, Naturally African”.

Next time you pop in, see if you can figure out which of us is a Rubik’s cube fundi, which of us wanted to join the police before carving a career in chocolate, or which of us used to lip-sync on variety shows. We also have a talented young lady who is prone to spontaneous dancing in the workshop, but that’s a little easier to spot…
