Barry Callebaut introduces historic british artisan chocolate


Barry Callebaut is introducing Stewart & Arnold, an artisan range of UK-made chocolate in 5kg specifically tailored to the preferences of the British palate. Inspired by recently uncovered traditional recipes, Stewart & Arnold brings the very best of Barry Callebaut’s chocolate expertise to a contemporary audience.

Richly rounded and deeply smooth with a distinct flavor profile, the range includes 70% Great British Dark Chocolate, 55% Great British Dark Chocolate, 35% Great British Milk Chocolate and Great British White Chocolate. The Stewart & Arnold portfolio is created using 100% sustainably sourced cocoa, the freshest milk from British farmers, as well as premium quality bourbon vanilla, to deliver the best-tasting chocolate to customers whilst supporting local suppliers.

According to research, 90% of consumers believe it is important to buy British made products, and almost half of UK consumers would buy British goods no matter the price. Created and manufactured in Britain, Stewart & Arnold not only tastes indulgent, but is also easy to work with and suitable for a diverse range of applications, making it a quintessentially British chocolate for discerning local artisan producers. Rediscovered and now produced in Banbury, the brand’s history dates all the way back to 1945.

Vincenzo Mangano, Sales Director Gourmet at Callebaut UK & Ireland, commented: “The Stewart & Arnold brand has a wealth of inspirational history behind it. Original documents date back to 1945, just after World War II, and now more than 70 years later it is being produced in the historic market town of Banbury, so it’s very special to us. More than ever, customers are looking for provenance and quality to help them set their menu apart and encourage more consumers through the door. The Stewart & Arnold range is not only consistently versatile, but it is also designed to surprise and delight customers with an iconic British taste.”
