Harry Specters - Creating a sweeter life

16th August 2016 By Foundation East in News



It has been a great couple of months for Harry Specters, a Foundation East client and social venture who are based in Cambridgeshire.


Harry Specters won four more Great Taste Awards in July 2016 which brings a total of 9 awards in 3 years. They are now officially a Great Taste Producer Company.


Their chocolate factory has been relocated following their first round of investment of £250,000 in the first quarter of 2016. As a result, they have:


  • Relocated from "back of their house" chocolate factory in Cambridge to a 1500 sq. ft. facility in Ely, Cambridgeshire.
  • Increased chocolate production facility.
  • Scaled their social mission of creating employment & free work experience placements for young people with autism.

We are very proud to be supporting Harry Specters and you can find out more about their Social Impact here.
