If you have a passion for chocolate and have been thinking about starting up your own business then this course is definitely for you!
Chocolate is one of our nation's best loved treats, with last year's sales in the UK alone increasing by a whopping 15% the chocolate industry is one that will continue to boom. The perfect gift for birthdays, Christmas ,and any other special occasion, there is always an opportunity to sell your chocolate creations!
Whether you have a small family recipe to make the best homemade white chocolate or whether you want to aim big and start your own brand of chocolate to stock at supermarkets, you can be sure to attract buyers for whatever it is that you want to produce.
Around the world, chocolate is one of the leading favourite foods. In fact, there are so many different types of chocolate that it wouldn't be wrong to say that there is a type for everyone. There is your classic milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate, and then there are all these wonderful fusions of different flavours that excite the palate. Many chocolates also have different additions; some have a rich caramel filling while others are stuffed with almonds. Across the world, you will find modifications made to the same basic kind of chocolate. China and Japan are famous for the wonderful, and sometimes-eccentric, flavour combinations they have created, such as chocolate flavoured with green tea.
What You Will Gain from the Course
The purpose of this course is to guide you through the whole process of setting up your own chocolate business. The course begins by discussing a number of reasons why it is actually feasible for you to enter into this industry, and then discusses the ingredients that go into making standard chocolate.
The course then moves onto the business aspect of chocolate-making and talks about how and why you need to define the products you will be making. It then introduces you to the different types of chocolate'’ such as milk chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and raw chocolate'’ as well as their uses, ingredients, history, and popularity. The next couple of chapters then focus on the technical aspect of the business, such as what kind of place you will need to set up, what kind of equipment is needed, how you need to market your product, and what kind of costs you can expect to incur during the process of establishing and running your own chocolate-making business.
This course also contains details about other aspects of making chocolate and different types of confectionary, such as: marzipan, cookies, pralines, disks, souffles, molten treats, cakes, cupcakes, and chocolate chips. It also teaches you about the different types of decorations that can be made from chocolate, such as chocolate bases, tubes and figures.
Lastly, the course focuses on a very important aspect of the process of manufacturing chocolate, which is the supply chain: how to find the best supplier, how to maintain a healthy relationship with your suppliers, what kind of networking is needed, and what perks you can offer to suppliers.
Each chapter of this course is followed by a comprehensive summary that highlights the main point of the chapter and an assessment to test how well you have retained the information.

The first thing I want to portray is that this course is very informing and detailed. The information is professional and practice oriented. It it paired with some useful exercises. The diploma comes with CPD credits. However what disappointed me a lot was the way in which the information is given. It is only via text. So in essence you pay money for a online book which you cannot even download. The next disappointing thing is that the course uses some outdated science which has been disproven. Namely the eye accessing cues. The movements of the eyes are not correlated with memory or construction of a lie.
As a Teaching Assistant in a primary school where we have a number of children who are on The Spectrum, this course and the ABA Therapy course have both been amazing for my Continuous Personal Development. I don't think I've ever studied anything that has had such an immediate and profound effect on my work life before. Getting a distinction in both of these courses has really impressed our Headmistress and Governers too which is a bonus! Plus Kate and Steph have been brilliantly supportive (not to mention patient LOL) throughout the entire process.
