Angelica’s Chocolates was born out of an adventure to Europe for a family wedding in the summer of 2017. Our plan while visiting Europe, was to find a product that would be new to the United States and different from what was available in the marketplace. Angelica’s Chocolates found that item, it is Emoti Brand Chocolates from Belgium. They are GMO free, contain no high fructose corn syrup and all the ingredients come from organic origins.
We spent the remainder of 2017 communicating with the manufacturer of Emoti Brand as well as taking care of all the necessary steps to import a new food item into the United States. Angelica’s Chocolates received our first shipment of approximately a ton of chocolate in June 2018, hence our ecommerce site was born. This was a great accomplishment after a few setbacks. With additional trips to Europe we acquired the distribution rights to North America. We are not only an ecommerce business, we are a wholesaler. Our next step is to be able to talk with the major retail outlets to spread the word about this great product and get it placed in their stores.
To date, the capital needed to perform all tasks has come out of our pockets. In order to continue the marketing and sale of this wonderful product we will need an infusion of funding to be able to contact the various market representatives. The expenditure anticipated to reach these representatives and establish our product in the marketplace is estimated at $50,0000-$75,000.
Angelica’s Chocolates is a proud sponsor of ThePeteFoundation.org, having donated twenty-five percent of our profits to The Pete Foundation in 2018.
