Melbourne Cocoa is the brainchild of Jeremy and Philippa Kennedy-Wilson, the 2nd generation artisans behind Kennedy & Wilson, a label that has delivered award-winning chocolate to chefs and aficionados for over 25 years. Our family owned and operated umbrella company, The Cocoa Group, has long history of manufacturing chocolate for a range of premium private labels too.
To conceive Melbourne Cocoa, Jez and Pip paired up with Rich Harley, a Melbourne designer with a passion for his city and extensive experience designing local wine, food and event creative. This combination of chocolate royalty and design edge makes Melbourne Cocoa a youthful, dynamic, distinctly Melbourne experience.
We officially launched in the lead up to Easter 2019, with a pop-up at iconic Melbourne Central. On offer was our range of bars along with nine chocolate eggs, including a limited edition 81% dark chocolate golden egg, and our gooey caramel-filled speckled eggs. Our city embraced us beyond our wildest expectations. Our factory was kept busy, with two extra production runs required to meet the demand of Melbourne’s discerning chocolate fans and generous gift-givers.
Buoyed by this wonderful reception, we’re now working on extending our range of chocolate bars and finding a new, more permanent retail home. Somewhere where you and your visitors can indulge in the Melbourne Cocoa experience. Somewhere as truly Melbourne as our chocolate is.
While we’re finding that dream home and securing our e-commerce capabilities, we’re more than happy to fulfill an order for you via firstname.lastname@example.org or +613 5964 9388.
