The Academy of Chocolate presents:

An audience with John Scharffenberger

John Sharffenberger is paying one of his rare visits to London so this is a unique opportunity to meet him.

John Sharffenberger, together with his partner Robert Steinberg founded one of America’s first ‘artisan’ chocolate makers back in the early Nineties.

John started his professional life as a Californian wine maker and while Robert’s expertise was in medicine – a perfect combination to produce chocolate!

The Scharffen Berger chocolate company started in a ‘garage’ and concentrated on using cocoa beans from selected South American cocoa plantations that John developed with the ‘campesinos’.

In 2006 Hershey bought Scharffen Berger chocolate. Now John travels the cocoa growing world working with farmers to improve their stocks, their environments and their livelihoods.
