Chantal Coady of Rococo Chocolates OBE in Queen’s Birthday Honours

Congratulations to our founder Chantal Coady, who has just been made an OBE in the 2014 Queen’s Birthday Honours List. Her involvement with chocolate goes back to 1983 when she opened her first chocolate shop, Rococo Chocolates, in London’s Kings Road.

Chantal was recently awarded the Grenada Ruby Award for outstanding contribution to the business development of Grenada where it jointly owns a cocoa farm and the OBE also recognises Rococo Chocolates’ contributions to many charities over the years, not to mention its trail-blazing design, craftsmanship, engaged ethics, and the provenance and pleasure which this family-owned business brings to its customers.

Chantal is also a Founding Member of the Academy of Chocolate.
