Founded in 2013, Essy & Bella Chocolate is owned and run by Amy Granger. Born out of a desire for high quality and great tasting free from products, self-taught chocolatier Amy set about creating an incredible range of vegan and free from chocolates.
Amy is no stranger to specific dietary requirements, choosing a vegan lifestyle and suffering from non-coelaic gluten sensitivity, she is also raising three daughters who have multiple food allergies. With this in mind, all of Essy & Bella's products are free from the top 14 allergens.
Essy & Bella Chocolate's handmade gourmet chocolates enable those with food allergies, intolerances or specific lifestyle choices to enjoy delicious treats. Each and every product is lovingly handcrafted in small batches using the highest quality, ethically sourced ingredients without any unnatural preservatives.
