Our aim is to promote quality chocolate to a wider audience by offering an affordable platform for chocolatiers and chocolate makers to showcase their products and share their stories, so that you can indulge your passion for all things chocolate!

Discover Cacao promotes ethically sourced and sustainable chocolate options from passionate producers who connect and work with the cacao farmers they source from, to ensure the best quality of their chocolate is maintained.

With demonstrations and tastings, as well as an inspiring selection of the purest and finest chocolate available to buy, we spent a day in a chocolate heaven of non-stop indulgence. We learned that there is more to chocolate than just the taste.

In 2012 we were invited to attend ‘Chocolate Unwrapped’, an event set in the depths of the London Film Museum in Covent Garden. And on a wet October day, our perception of chocolate was changed forever.

In 2014, two years we created Discover Cacao – to support the chocolatiers and chocolate makers we had met through our daily work, and invited them to join us in a small community hall in Oxted, Surrey for our first Oxted Chocolate Fair. On 22nd December 2014 we filled that hall with chocolate, and people came.

Through our events across the South-East we offer free education in all things cacao via our exhibitors. By setting a stage we give chocolate experts, chocolatiers, chocolate makers, and professional speakers, a platform to tell their story, to promote their products, and more importantly, to share their knowledge and explain why they are supporting a movement to source and support the workers on the ground in the cocoa plantations.

Since then we have returned to Oxted each year, two weeks before Easter. We have expanded this to include the Denbies Chocolate Fair at Denbies Wine Estate in Dorking, Surrey to make a weekend of chocolate in Surrey. Other events have seen the addition of the Brighton Chocolate Festival across the second weekend in October.

We also offer bespoke events including ‘An Introduction to Award Winning Chocolate’, and ‘An Introduction to Vegan Chocolate’ – first showcased at The Carpenters Arms, Limpsfield, Surrey.

Easy education is included with every event because ‘Better Beans mean Better Chocolate’.
