About Grenada chocolate fest
Grenada Chocolate Fest is an annual week-long festival that takes place in May on the Caribbean Island of Grenada. Grenada, the southern most windward island, is home to over five chocolate factories including the world famous Grenada Chocolate Company founded by the god-fathers of modern tree-to-bar chocolate Mott Green and Edmund Brown. Food, learning and entertainment experiences take place all over the island with the intention of celebrating ethical tree-to-bar chocolate.
How It Started
Grenada Chocolate Fest was founded in 2014 by Magdalena Fielden- a passionate chocolate lover, philanthropist and crazy cacao lady. Magdalena, a native Mexican, came to Grenada with her husband in 1996 to raise their then young family. Together they own and run the charming True Blue Bay Boutique Resort.
In 2000 the Grenada Chocolate Company, founded by Mott Green and Edmond Browne, the godfathers of modern tree to bar chocolate, opened its doors. It was Grenada’s first-ever chocolate factory after hundreds of years of growing fine flavoured cocoa for export to traditional chocolate-making countries like Europe and North America. The Grenada Chocolate Company was the first of several chocolate makers that now exist on the island and grow organic fine flavoured cocoa to make a small batch ethical tree to bar chocolate.
The Effects of the Festivals Success
The Grenada Chocolate Fest celebrates all thing cocoa from the tree-to-bar chocolate making the process to local and sustainable cocoa inspired products. Through the Festival’s carefully curated schedule of events, festival-goers will be taken around the stunning tropical island, into the cocoa fields and behind the scenes of sustainably run cottage style chocolate factories and small scale modern factories.
Over the years the festival has attracted chocolate lovers and chocolatiers from around the globe. It has been a hot spot for budding chocolatiers to learn from experts and thus the Grenada Chocolate Fest has been a catalyst for the ever blossoming chocolate and cocoa industries around the island and beyond.
