Passion for chocolates and local enterprise
Rivington Chocolates opened for business in 2014, a cottage industry built on a desire to produce hand made luxury chocolates using only the finest sustainable ingredients and bespoke recipes direct from our kitchen in Horwich by owners Christine and Chris.
Being a qualified nurse Christine has an exceptional eye for detail added to this a creative nature with experience in jewelry making.
The chocolate bug has well and truly bitten Christine who has been making chocolates for a number of years for family and friends attending and completing various courses at Slatterys in Manchester to develop her skills further. This passion and skill are now the creative driving force behind Rivington Chocolates to share and delight both new and existing customers.
Chris is a fully qualified building surveyor with over 30 years experience in the Housing Sector. Also an attendee at Slatterys, Chris has developed as a chocolatier in his own right along with ensuring the business grows, and supports other enterprises and the local economy. “I wanted to use all my skill and experience of running a high pressure organization and focus on something of my own with the outcome being for the benefit of the customer and the growth of the business, producing these individual pieces of beauty is such a satisfying experience”
In establishing ourselves we have encountered many like-minded businesses and we believe in supporting and being supported by a network of local enterprises that have an ethical vision to provide our customers with the highest quality goods and attention to detail at a fair and reasonable price.
