Montezuma is an independent preium chocolate brand which was launched by two lawyers in 2000.

Co-founder Helen Pattinson said: "We are very proud of our products, where sustainable and organic business growth wins over greed and where our Trading Fairly Policy sweeps a path of ethics covering everything from how we work with suppliers, how much packaging we use, how we dispose of rubbish to how ingredients are farmed."
