Gráinne Mullins – Grá Chocolates
Just six months on from opening her boutique handmade chocolate business, former Euro-Toques young chef of the year Gráinne Mullins has expanded the business into a micro-factory.
“My family and neighbours all helped in the construction of the factory. It was a huge team effort and was completed in less than a month,” Mullins says. She purchased specialised equipment in Belgium to make her Grá chocolates, with a grant from her Local Enterprise Office in Galway.
Each of her chocolates is made with locally and ethically sourced ingredients and handpainted, in a process that takes three days to complete. For Christmas, in addition to her mixed box of 10 large chocolates (€20), she is making beautiful limited edition chocolate baubles (€30 for three).
