Craft Chocolate Makers - Creating chocolate from the bean

Chocolate Maker

On this page, we celebrate those chocolate makers who have retail products that you can buy either online or at specialty stores. We want you to have the opportunity to taste their great chocolates so didn't include those that sell only through wholesalers. Have we found every new chocolate maker, probably not, but we try to keep on top of it.

There is a world of diverse flavor created by these dedicated chocolate makers and manufacturers. We like to use the following terms from the Fine Chocolate Industry Association (FCIA) to differentiate between the terms "chocolate maker" and "chocolate manufacturer":

Chocolate maker – This term usually refers to those companies that produce chocolate in small to medium sized batches from fermented and dried cocoa beans.

Chocolate manufacturer – This term usually refers to those large companies that produce a broad range of mass market chocolate from dried cocoa beans.
