Rococo Comtemporary British Chocolate
In March 1983 Chantal Coady OBE launched Rococo Chocolates on London's Kings Road, a whimsical and romantic fantasy world for chocolate lovers.
More than three decades, four shops and five books later (all about the joys of luxury chocolate of course) Chantal is still pioneering the movement for real chocolate, inspiring many through warm and inviting shops, delicately nuanced flavours and creative, beautiful packaging. In fact, the Academy of Chocolate made an award to Chantal and Rococo for ‘Changing the way People Think About Chocolate’ and the Wall Street Journal among others recognized her as the founder of the ‘New British School’ of chocolate. In 2014 Chantal Coady was awarded an O.B.E. in the Queens Birthday Honours ‘For Services To Chocolate’ recognising her long and groundbreaking career.
