National Hot Chocolate Day

National Hot Chocolate Day

​With the development of chocolate drinks reaching back to 1974 and supported by a history of working with chocolate back to 1911 on site at Knighton Foods, it’s not surprising to understand why we have celebrated National Hot Chocolate Day.

The years of experience that have been gained from understanding the importance of individual ingredients combined with technological advances has enabled the Knighton site to become one of the UK’s largest manufacturers of drinking chocolate and instant chocolate in the UK.

Today Knighton Foods produces 30% of the hot chocolate supplied to the UK in all it’s many forms, from just add water instant chocolate drinks through to creamy and exquisite drinking chocolate.

To celebrate the day the team at Knighton have lifted the lid on just some of that expertise through photographs and video across social media with the highlight of the day being some of the onsite team braving the snow… yes, it snowed here today for a photograph and cup of hot chocolate produced on site.
