It’s very much a partnership at Lucocoa Chocolate with Amarachi Uzowuru and Andy Clarke responsible for the whole operation from sourcing the beans, to wrapping the bars.
Ama’s background is in politics, charity and digital project management. She was vice president at the National Union of Students where she represented 7million students across the UK to the government. She then went on to work for the charity Comic Relief where she pioneered a sub brand of the charity which showed Africa in a positive light.
Andy meanwhile divides his time between commentating on boxing and football for the likes of Sky Sports and The Times and making chocolate. It’s an unusual combination but much to his delight he’s discovered that it is possible to winnow roasted cocoa beans whilst watching sport, multi-tasking at its finest.
The name itself, Lucocoa, is a combination of the names of our principal ingredients of lucuma, coconut sugar, cocoa beans and cocoa butter, at least three of which are contained in all of our bars.
