[Trailer] Nothing Like Chocolate: The Story of the Grenada Chocolate Company
The colourful packaging stands out amongst the confectionary shelves of selected supermarkets and coffee shops alike. Nicknamed the ‘Spice Island’ for its large export of nutmeg, Grenada has a place on the map and in the hearts of chocolate fans worldwide as the Grenada Chocolate company is based in a small factory in the parish of St Patricks.
Although I never visited the factory on my last visit to Grenada, it was always a reference point when driving back to my grandma’s house. Using only the finest organic ingredients, their packing and even the ink they print with is eco-friendly.
