Manufacturing Process: Handcrafted with Care
Quality is paramount for Friars', as each chocolate has to be inspected for taste and texture before being packaged and shipped to waiting customers. We take pride in our meticulous manufacturing process, which is handcrafted to perfection. Our artisan chocolate makers use traditional and modern methods, taking the time to craft each piece with care.
The process starts by selecting only the best ingredients. Then they are carefully roasted and blended until they reach the right consistency. The chocolate is tempered before finally being poured into moulds, which cool down and solidify into perfect shapes. Lastly, the chocolates are examined before being placed in decorative boxes ready for shipment.
