We love Copenhagen but we love the rest of the World just as much and we are thrilled that our chocolate bars are traveling around discovering the world on their own.
We listen carefully to travelers meaning we have products especially suitable for the travel retail market.
Entering the Travel Retail & Duty-Free industry has been a big focus area during the last couple of years for Simply Chocolate. Recognizing the great potential for brand and product, Simply Chocolate engaged a project developing an exclusive chocolate protein bar for Scandinavian Airlines. A product which now has been voted in as a finalist by shoppers, for the 2019 Travel Retail Awards in the category “Best Confectionary Product. We named the product “Hand Luggage”.
“We’re proud that we got the task of creating a bar for Scandinavia’s own airline. This is Scandi cooperation at its best! SAS wanted to be able to offer their travelers a quality chocolate bar without causing problems for travelers suffering from nut allergies. Without hesitation, our development team went to work and the crunchy almonds became the solution. By combining chocolate and passionfruit with protein we have created a great snack that keeps you full during long flights – making Hand Luggage the essence of traveling,” says Niels Østenkær, CEO of Simply Chocolate.
“The serious players in the industry know that we must work with sustainable produced ingredients if we wish to continue to be able to make chocolate products. This is why we at Simply Chocolate only use Cocoa Horizons-certified chocolate. But the local aspect also plays an important part – we produce all our chocolate bars by hand here at our small factory in Copenhagen, ensuring that we know exactly what goes into our bars,” Niels Østenkær says, hoping that the nomination will make other companies see the value in having a chocolate bar customized to match their brand.
