This is part of uOpen’s ‘Meet The Maker’ interview series - your exclusive opportunity to get to know the real people and personalities behind the subscription boxes you know and love, and the ones you will soon come to!
Discover the fascinating stories behind how your favourite subscriptions originally came to be, the marvellous people involved in lovingly creating and curating each box, plus a few ‘behind the scenes’ snaps.
What sparked your decision to start up your box and how did you get started?
We identified a group of Monty's fans who were regularly buying and thought we could create a monthly box of assorted chocolates for them! The idea took off - who doesn't love receiving a box of chocolates in the post?
Describe your box in three words?
Innovative British Chocolate.
Where did your box name come from?
We're producing great chocolate, using 'real' quality ingredients!
Are you a creator or curator?
What was your most popular box?
Our festive boxes always prove very popular and have included some of our favourite chocolates such as our 'Milk Chocolate Sherry Trifle Truffles'. Yum!
How many people are involved with producing your subscription box?
Our innovation team, design team and our production team all work hard to make each box the best it can be!
Which subscription boxes do you subscribe to?
We love trying new boxes; innovative food boxes always catch our eye!
Name a celebrity subscriber you’d love to have as a customer?
We have had a few already - all top secret of course!
If you could put anything in your box, with money or scarcity no object, what would it be?
We've tried many flavour combinations, some are fantastic, and some recipes still need tweaking! But for that extra special finish, we'd love to top all of the chocolates in every box with gold leaf! Alas, this is currently only reserved for our extra special giant Christmas trees!
