How Vegan Milk Chocolate Is Made | Friars

So how is vegan milk chocolate made? Well I suppose a good starting point is to define vegan in the context of chocolate making. Here’s the good news. In its raw form chocolate is, yes you guessed it, vegan! What makes this a fact is that chocolate is derived from the cacao bean, the fruit of the cacao tree and thus it is indeed inherently plant based.

How we reduce air miles with our Vegan Oat Milk | Friars

One of the major problems with finding cruelty free alternatives to ingredients such as milk is that often, producing the alternatives can be quite harmful to the environment. Whether it’s using Almonds grown internationally, or other products that require a lot of processing with water, sometimes vegan food manufacturers can end up contributing to an overly large carbon output, which as we know can be harmful to our planet.  At Friars, when we first designed our Kakoa Vegan Chocolate range we wanted to produce a product that was as eco-conscious...

Vegan Chocolate Christmas Gift Guide 2020

At Friars, we don’t take Vegan food lightly. To us, before the launch of Vegan Chocolatier, good quality vegan chocolates were very hard to come by, that’s because so many chocolate manufacturers simply just removed the milk from the chocolate recipe, leaving a dark and often bitter chocolate behind. We do things a little differently here, by using the finest plant based ingredients to craft our growing range of Kakoa Vegan chocolates. What better gift to give to your vegan family and friends than some lovingly crafted vegan chocolates. These... Read More
