Idea

We’re Raw Halo, an award-winning raw chocolate brand producing delicious and healthier chocolate made from raw cacao. Our chocolate is free from refined sugar, gluten, and dairy. We’re Great Taste Award winning, Soil Association Organic certified, and Vegan Society approved.

Operating within the UK’s fastest growing supermarket categories, including “Free-From” (worth over £531 million in 2016) and Organic (sales set to reach £2.2 billion in 2017), we’re on a mission to become the world’s most-loved luxury raw chocolate brand.

The inspiration for Raw Halo came when founder Meg spotted a new segment within the raw chocolate category, targeting current consumers and encouraging them to trade up.
