The company was founded in 1999 by Ann Rudden, a passionate master chocolatier with 23 years' experience in the chocolate industry. Her vision was to create chocolate as it should be: mouth-watering magic that is made with only the purest, freshest, all-natural ingredients sourced locally where possible.
Today, Áine's Chocolate employs a team who shares that passion for producing heavenly handmade chocolate, leading to 25 Great Taste awards. All products are gluten-free, with sugar-free products also available.

Aines Chocolates Ltd. have committed to transforming the existing un-used land that surrounds the premises into a wild-life garden that will create a habitat for birds and pollinators. This area will also act as a relaxing space for staff and visitors.
Aines Chocolates Ltd. have committed to providing gluten-free products that can be enjoyed by everyone. They will also display nutritional and allergen information on their website which will be updated regularly, allowing consumers to make informed choices about their products.
