Congratulations to Chantal Coady, who has just been made an OBE in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Her involvement with chocolate goes back to 1983 when she opened her first chocolate shop, Rococo Chocolates, in London’s Kings Road.
Rococo now has 3 shops in London and one in the Northwest at the Chester Grosvenor and continues to be the pioneering hub of the ‘New British School of Chocolate’.
Chantal was recently awarded the Grenada Ruby Award for outstanding contribution to the business development of Grenada where it jointly owns a cocoa farm and the OBE also recognizes Rococo Chocolates’ contributions to many charities over the years, not to mention its trail-blazing design, craftsmanship, engaged ethics, and the provenance and pleasure which this family-owned business brings to its customers.
Chantal is a Founder Member of the Academy of Chocolate.
