Our award-winning dark chocolate is made by a handful of people. Working as a team is important to us, so every week we make the effort to get together over coffee and discuss where we are at with the business.
One of our staff members is Laura. Laura is a master of everything at Solomons Gold, from making the chocolate which includes tempering the chocolate, hand moulding the bars, foiling and wrapping. Nearly ever chocolate bar that is sent out, Laura has had a hand in making!
She got involved with Solomons Gold through Glenn's daughter, Andrea (Andrea also works with us!). She came in for a trail and got the job and has been an integral part of our team for three years.
We asked Laura a few questions:
1. What's your favourite part of the job?
Eating our chocolate
2. How do you star the day?
Eating! I love having a good ol' porridge to start every morning!
3. Favourite Solomons Gold Dark Chocolate flavour?
It has to be 70% Dark Mint! - I love the flavour of cacao and mint together - it makes a delicious combination.
4. What's the one thing you can't live without?
Water! (she took this quite literally).
5. Quote you live by?
From Harry Potter - 'Don't pity the dead, pity the living and most of all, those who live without love'.
