Ooh! Chocolata, in Southfield Road Trading Estate, is doubling in size after just two years in the business.

Co-founder of the company, Ruth Yard, said: “We now have well over 200 customers up and down the country and serve each one direct from our factory in Nailsea.

“Earlier in the year, we also started online retailing to support growth of our brand nationwide. All this has contributed to the need to expand - as well as needing more physical space for our growing workforce.”

The business now produces more than 80 products to tease chocolate lovers’ taste buds.
