FSB Cornwall exhibited at the Expowest Cornwall trade show last week as part of our collaboration with Hale Events. The show was buzzing with amazing food and drink stalls and we had a really busy and interesting three days there.
Lots of people popped by to say hello and ask us about FSB and the benefits of being a member. If you were one of them, we hope you enjoyed our little gift of chocolate – just our way of saying thanks for dropping by.
This was produced by local FSB member Kernow Chocolate, Cornwall’s largest artisan chocolate maker, who specialise in making amazing hand-crafted luxury chocolate in over 20 different flavours.
Their philosophy is ‘from broken hearts to grazed knees, there’s no problem that can’t be solved with chocolate’. As a family business, they have been members of FSB for over 30 years and as their business has changed and grown and become the success that it is today, FSB have been beside them offering them support and help whenever needed. So, it was lovely working with them to produce our special FSB Chocolate which was designed to offer a ‘piece of peace’, with the idea that you could take a small piece, have a break and a moment of mindfulness before carrying on, restored.
This ties in nicely with our recent Health and Wellbeing for small businesses campaign – sometimes just a small break, or a bit of a walk in the great, fresh Cornish air is all you need so you can get back to work feeling ready to take on the world.
We picked the chocolate up from their factory in St Eval near Wadebridge where we were able to watch chocolate being made through a glass window. It’s really fascinating to watch and the smell was yummy as you can imagine.
They also have a lovely shop there where you can buy their chocolate and a small café so you can take a break – well worth a visit and really interesting too.
