Montezuma's little chocolate business started in 2000 with only a kitchen sink sized machine, huge enthusiasm, spades of naivety and most importantly, a broad ideal to bring chocolate innovation to a boring and staid British chocolate market. With the exception of that first machine, little has changed and the childish enthusiasm shared exploring South America in 1999 largely wakes up with us every morning.

Being lawyers turned self-taught chocolate makers has meant steep learning curves and often re-inventing the wheel but everything Montezumas do is carried out with a passion for creating chocolate they want to eat in an environment they enjoy. What they certainly didn't train for or indeed expect in otheir wildest dreams was that a business started on a shoestring would become arguably Britain's most innovative chocolate brand with a reputation far bigger than our actual footprint!

The ideals they started out with have stayed with them and are firmly rooted. Montezumas are very proud of their products where substance wins over style, where sustainable and organic business growth wins over greed and where their Trading Fairly Policy sweeps a path of ethics covering everything from how they work with suppliers, how much packaging they use, how they dispose of rubbish to how ingredients are farmed.

As a small family business Montezumas trys hard to ensure they do a good job with equity and integrity.

In the end what matters is that Montezumas produce a great product and we do it in a way that makes sense in the long term.
