Australian Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Makers 

The craft chocolate scene has exploded in Australia and the world in the last decade. Going from virtually nothing in many countries to several dozen homegrown chocolate makers. As of 2020, there are over 30 bean-to-bar chocolate makers in Australia.

The scene in Australia is full of wonderful, passionate people who put so much time and energy into making the most delicious, ethically sourced chocolate bars. But they need your support to survive and thrive as craft chocolate is not as established as the speciality coffee and craft beer industries.

In our humble opinion, there’s a “Craft Chocolate Revolution” brewing, craft beer and coffee are now established but chocolate is ready to go mainstream. And in the process fulfilling every chocoholic’s dream!

 

“Small makers are influencing the taste of the public, and big makers are responding to that demand. We are moving the needle.” says Clay Gordon, craft chocolate adviser, teacher, and author.
