Meet the Chocolate Maker

Louise Attenborough - Head Chocolatier

Chocolate Collective was founded by Louise Attenborough, after searching high and low for someone who offered children’s chocolate parties for her daughter, Sophie’s, birthday party. Noticing a gap in the market, Louise seized the moment and Chocolate Collective was born.

Louise started out by offering the Deluxe Chocolate Truffle-Making Workshops to the lucky people of Greater Manchester, before word spread and she was able to expand her team and her locations to cover Birmingham and the West Midlands, Leeds and Yorkshire. During the Covid 19 pandemic, Louise introduced an ‘at home’ Chocolate Truffle Making Kit, which proved a huge hit with chocolate lovers everywhere. Offering a unique way to learn new skills and indulge in a passion for chocolate, these kits have continued to prove popular beyond the pandemic thanks to their flexibility and fun.

Chocolate Collective is now trusted partner to some of the biggest names delivering experience days, including Red Letter Days, Into the Blue, Buy a Gift, Experience Days, Activity Superstore plus many Hen and Stag agencies.

Meet head chocolatier Louise

You may find it surprising, but Louise never really liked chocolate growing up! Now, her knowledge, skill and passion for all things chocolate is unmistakeable and surpassed only by her love of working with people; adults and children alike. Nothing gives her more pleasure than teaching others and seeing them delight in their creations.

Having successfully built the business with her own two (chocolate-covered) hands since 2013, Louise has big plans to expand, bringing Chocolate Collective’s chocolatey goodness and interactive workshops to other areas of the UK.

Louise is a keep fit enthusiast, dog lover, keen gardener and relishes the great outdoors. Which is a good job when you live, breathe and happily eat chocolate every day!
