school trips

Introduce your students to the magic of chocolate-making with a private factory tour for school classes. Your students will taste chocolate at every stage and discover how raw cacao is turned into chocolate. They’ll learn what happens before the cacao even reaches our factory and why it’s such an important commodity and will, of course, get to taste chocolate in its final form.

Our team will work with you to build a curriculum specific to your students' needs, from the history of cacao and the science of cocoa composition to the economics of raw cacao and what it means to be fair trade. We want everyone to understand the value in knowing where food comes from and the people that make it all happen!

Price: For groups of 15 or fewer: $150 (min 8 students) | For groups of 16 or more: $10/student, $5/chaperone, $10/additional adult (max 30 students) | Teacher admission is free

Note: 1 chaperone is required for every 10 students under the age of 12

Dates: Wednesdays and Fridays at 11am
