The brand can trace its origins back to 1945 when businessman William Stewart and Dr Arnold Spicer (Fellow of Royal Institute of Chemistry) created a Chocolate Factory in the small town of High Wycombe.
Over 70 years later, Stewart & Arnold is now produced in the historic market town of Banbury, headquarters of Barry Callebaut’s UK operation, and bordering the Cotswolds in the heart of the British countryside.
Vincenzo Mangano, Sales Director Gourmet at Callebaut UK & Ireland, said: “The Stewart & Arnold brand has a wealth of inspirational history behind it. Original documents date back to 1945, just after World War Two, and now more than 70 years later, it is being produced in the historic market town of Banbury, so it’s very special to us.”
“More than ever, customers are looking for provenance and quality to help them set their menu apart and encourage more consumers through the door. The Stewart & Arnold range is not only consistently versatile, but it is also designed to surprise and delight customers with an iconic British taste.”
Richly rounded and deeply smooth with a distinct flavour profile, the range includes 70% Great British Dark Chocolate, 55% Great British Dark Chocolate, 35% Great British Milk Chocolate, and Great British White Chocolate.
The Stewart & Arnold portfolio is created using 100% sustainably sourced cocoa, the freshest milk from British farmers, as well as premium quality bourbon vanilla while also supporting local suppliers.
