Tell us about your business – sell yourselves!
I started OMG – Oh My Ganache to give variety to everyone. Any flavour for any occasion is what the business is all about and there are no limits.
Being able to put whatever ingredient I fancy into chocolate is fun and I love coming up with new flavours, such as my most popular – bacon flavour milk chocolate!
It is great to work with people to make something truly memorable for their occasion or event and I get a lot of satisfaction from that.
What gave you the idea for your business?
I first started making chocolate for my dad who always enjoyed a bar or two of rum and raisin chocolate. However, it proved difficult to find in shops so I decided to have a go at it myself – how hard could it be?
I found I had a knack for making chocolate, so I carried on experimenting with different ingredients and different ways of making it.
After I mastered making classic chocolate, I thought I would try my hand at free from chocolate, which is suitable for vegans, those who cannot have gluten or dairy, diabetics and essentially anyone with food allergies or intolerances.
Originally, as well as making rum and raisin chocolate for my dad, I started making it for family and friends. Over time, word of mouth worked its magic and Oh My Ganache was born.
Who are your customers and how are you targeting them?
Most of my customers come from events I attend such as wedding fairs, seasonal markets, or business networking. I also use social media to reach potential customers.
OMG has a great monthly subscription that you can treat yourself to or give as a gift – a real gem for the chocoholic.
I have chocolate activities for groups which are super for various occasions like staff parties, family gatherings or giving friends a special treat.
If you are looking for something for your team to do, why not try the OMG team activity? It takes you through the production, sale and marketing of a chocolate product, from concept right through to delivery.
