About Us

Guppy's Chocolates are Peter and Fran Guppy... 

 ...and we are passionate about all things chocolate! All  our delicious chocolates are handmade & hand packaged  from our family-run premises in York.

 Our story:

Having both previously worked for large companies in the financial services sector, it was always a dream of ours to have our own family business. Chocolate has long been a passion of ours and before the younger generation of Guppy’s came along, Guppy’s Chocolates was a part-time hobby where we made all our chocolates in the kitchen! In mid-2010, we decided to make our dream of having our own chocolate-making business come true, so we converted our garage into our very own chocolate factory and gave up the other jobs!

Increased demand meant that our garage AND house were nearly fit to burst with chocolate & packaging materials, so at the start of 2013 we took the big step of leaving our garage factory & moving into premises on Clifton Moor in York. Things have moved on even more since then and in April 2016 we relocated to larger premises in Nether Poppleton, York. We still handmake all our chocolates & package them by hand on the premises – just with a little more room! We pride ourselves on carrying on the family traditions of the Rowntrees and Terry's families, handmaking great quality chocolates in the City of York. We’re hoping our children will enjoy being part of the business as they get older – they’re already very good at tasting & putting on stickers!

Are you interested in stocking Guppy's Chocolates? We supply to Farm Shops, Independent Retailers, Restaurants and Hotels in the UK. 

All our chocolates are handmade and hand-packaged in small batches, to ensure quality. We have a wide range of fabulous tasting chocolates, from our very popular Chocolate Shards and Studded Bars, to our more classic Chocolate Bars. We have worked with award-winning designers to ensure that everything is beautifully packaged. We also use a chocolate supplier who is committed to sustainable cocoa cultivation.
