Chocolate Island of the Caribbean
The Chocolate Island of the Caribbean
We wrapped up another wonderful Grenada Chocolate Fest with a record number of 24 events at Grenada’s most stunning locations! The turn out of festival goers has been the best since we started it all six years ago. Grenada has truly earned its name as The Chocolate Island of the Caribbean.
For those of you who joined us as we celebrated ethical fine flavoured chocolate, we truly enjoyed your company. It was an absolute pleasure to have you. If you did not get a chance to make it to Grenada this year we hope to see you in 2020.
