British artisan chocolate producer Gnaw Chocolate has launched a new range of 72% cocoa dark chocolate bars to appeal to the growing ‘free from’ generation making lifestyle choices around the type of food they eat.
Gnaw says its chocolates are handcrafted in its Norwich factory with locally-sourced ingredients, natural flavors and no added ‘nasties’.
The premium 100g bars in two flavors are both suitable for vegetarians and are also dairy-free. The new Toasted Coconut bar is also suitable for those who have gluten-sensitivity or have coeliac disease as it is gluten-free.
Matt Legon, Gnaw’s founder said: “By keeping a close eye on the market, we developed the high cocoa, 72% range in response to a clear consumer demand. We are pleased to be able to respond with our two delicious and exciting luxurious chocolate bars, which not only taste incredible but are suitable for the growing numbers of people living with food intolerances.”
Gnaw Chocolate was formed by husband and wife team Matt and Teri Legon in 2011 after finding they could not source quality chocolate products for their sweet shop.
The company has established strong ethical guidelines with more than 95% of waste recycled. All of the electricity used in its factory and offices is from 100% renewable energy.
Gnaw cocoa is sourced from small plantations where they can ensure there are good working practices and all its chocolate is made on site and distributed from one location, to save on fuel and cut carbon emissions.
