Amelia set up her own chocolate business after attending a Les Bonbons de Chocolat course at legendary chocolate manufacturer Valrhona in France.
She began her company, Amelia Rope Chocolate Ltd, with just £7,000 in funding raised between family and friends (having been refused a loan from high street banks).
She grew the business from an initial commission for 1,000 bars to a range of 13 bespoke bars and boxed chocolate cubes supplied to department stores and independent stockists both in the UK and further afield.
Amelia is fascinated by the kaleidoscope of flavours found in high quality chocolate and its history, from the cacao traditions of the Aztecs and the Mayans to the evolution of chocolate houses in Europe. Her business aims to highlight the importance of top end chocolate, as opposed to cheap, highly processed products.
