Most companies invest in promotional products, and whether it's a branded pen, a business card or even a coaster reminding potential customers of you every time they take  a drink of tea or coffee, they all have one thing in common... they aim to bring your business to the forefront of mind. But what about doing things a little differently? Let's talk branded chocolate. 

In a world, where it seems most people are trying to sell you something it can be hard to make yourself stand out from your competitors. Great customer service and products you can trust are vital in order for your company to succeed, but sometimes on top of that it's the small things that matter. And in this case, it's chocolate. 

Maybe this year instead of sending your clients and suppliers thank you cards you send them a personalised bar of chocolate? Maybe you could have your very own branded party favours at your next event? Or maybe you could make just make it an everyday thing to give your customers a tasty reminder of how much you appreciate them? Either way, chocolate is definitely the way to someones heart. 

After 129 years of making chocolates in Yorkshire, Whitakers Chocolates based in Skipton, supply the public, wholesalers, hotels, restaurants, supermarkets and independent retailers. Producing in excess of 10 million chocolates per week, they're not short on sweet treats. 

Beth Parsons talked to William Whitaker on Stray FM's Food and Drink Show about the future of promotional chocolates.
