Finding Our Inspiration
As Markets started to wind down for the season, we took the time to sit down and figure out what we wanted to do going forward. We talked about all the markets we had attended, and all the support and feedback we had gotten from our customers. Even though we were making a range of jams, chutneys, relishes, biscuits, chocolates and fudges, our customers only wanted to talk about one thing. Chocolate. So, we decided to trust our customers, and go all in on our chocolate treats!
When we first started out, we had only three chocolate products available, our Chocolate Clusters. We knew we’d need to expand that range if we were going to be a proper chocolate company. Over the following weeks and months, we played around with recipes, and took each batch of new treats to markets for our customers to try. We asked for feedback at markets, and online, and from that, our second range of chocolates was born, our Marshmallow Bites were a huge success!
Ever since then, we’ve looked to our wonderful customers for inspiration. Whether it’s in person, on social media, or by email at email@example.com. No idea is too crazy for us to at least attempt, and if it’s popular enough with our customers, we make it a permanent product.
Using these inspired ideas, our chocolatiers work out a recipe we think will make you happy and after that, the fun begins. The Inspiration is packed up in a (biodegradable) pouch, and samples are sent out for free with every single Buíoch order!
Then we ask our followers what they think of the new Inspiration. When we find an Inspiration people absolutely can’t get enough of, we make it a permanent part of the Buíoch range.
