My passion for chocolate was born of a love of adventure. That spirit took me to Venezuela, led me to buy Hacienda El Tesoro high in the cloud forest, and remains with me as my quest to make great chocolate takes me on the cacao trail around the Equator into the forests of the world, in search of the finest beans.

My chocolate is all about flavour. Great cacaos are like fine wines, each one with its own stunningly individual flavour born of its specific genetics, soil and climate. One might taste naturally of nuts, another of summer fruits. It is to capture these subtle notes and unique flavours that I make all my chocolate from the bean- which is called bean to bar chocolate! I buy single estate cacaos direct from the farmers, roast them in antique ball roasters and make them into chocolate using just raw cane sugar and natural cocoa butter – no soya lecithin, no vanilla, nothing that gets in the way of the flavour of the bean.

Our ambition is that by 2026, 50% of public money spent on food and drink in the South West will be spent directly with small and medium sized producers based in the region.

To achieve this, we are working with the government’s Crown Commercial Service to deliver the Future Food Framework, which is a new dynamic approach to public sector food procurement that will help small and medium sized producers in the region to sell directly to public sector institutions.

The South West Food Hub is supporting the region’s food network to buy local and establish shorter and more sustainable supply chains. We work across the South West’s food sector, focusing primarily on public procurement.

At Plymouth Tea, we are passionate about the history and tradition of our great city and of course, our tea. We are based in the historic naval city of Plymouth just a short ride from the steps where the Mayflower set sail on its journey to the Americas.

Plymouth Tea was originally born from a conversation between two friends, Ross Taylor and Tim Cross, who were looking for a new business opportunity as well as a chance to escape the usual grind of the 9-5 work day and spend more time in the beautiful Devon countryside.

Having built a successful advertising company together, Ross and Tim already had plenty to keep them busy. However, after a visit to a county show, they decided to embark on a new venture focused on Tea.

The idea was simple; source the highest quality tea and create 3 unique blends. The aim was to create a tea for tea lovers available through a select group of shops, tea-rooms, restaurants and hotels.

After several years of planning and preparation the first box of Plymouth Tea was sold in 2012 and the tea business has literally grown from there.

Food Technology & Management Capability

Dynamic Food Procurement has the potential to be a transformational force for good. That's why we have built the world's first tech platform to bring it to life across every sector and chain contributor in the food industry.

​EM is the technology platform proven to transform conventional procurement approaches by enabling SME inclusive food procurement, fulfilment, consolidation and delivery along short, transparent, supply chains.

By enabling the public and private sector to procure food direct from SME primary producers and secondary suppliers, caterers can build back better and reduce costs.

Short, transparent supply chains are an essential prerequisite for making informed choices when procuring food. The time has come to change your food supply for good.
