Who We Are
Chocolates by Tomes is a company that not only focuses on the chocolate it crafts but also on the people it employs.
The company was started in 2005 with just three employees and over the years we have grown and invested in our employees. In our company, everyone has a role to play; from the team producing the silky smooth chocolate that is used by the team to handcraft the scrumptious confectionery or used by the baking team to create decadent cakes and biscuits. The skills that we have collectively developed over the years now serve us well and allow us to produce, in our opinion, some of the finest chocolates, confectionery, cakes and biscuits in South Africa.
What We Do
We believe that chocolate is one of life’s finer delicacies, a refined luxury that should be savoured, enjoyed and appreciated. Chocolate should be silky smooth and as it slowly melts in your mouth, it should be full of rich and indulgent cocoa flavour.
To capture all of this we make our premium African Origin chocolate using only ingredients sourced from Africa. Africa’s cocoa beans are renowned for their rich cocoa flavour (which is why they are sought after by all the top European chocolate houses) and when blended with just enough South African sugar to sweeten and a dash of African vanilla to add contrast and draw out the cocoa flavour, we create a chocolate to savour and appreciate…a true taste of all that is good in Africa.
