For 25 years Pemberton’s Chocolate lived here booming with life and flowing with chocolate. Five years ago the factory closed its gates.
When NOMNOM moved into the old cowsheds and parlours of this once majestic attraction, we had no idea what was waiting to be discovered.
Left inside this Abandoned Chocolate Factory was an extraordinary collection of over 1000 chocolate moulds. These uniquely beautiful, slightly twisted, stray moulds, were found in jumbled piles, hoping to one day be filled with warm chocolate again.
We couldn't bear to leave them lifeless and hollow any longer. Instead, we are turning these abandoned moulds into one-off, beautiful, hand painted sculptures of edible art. Each capturing the macabre spirit of this enchanting place. Putting life into the moulds to put life into this Factory once again. Over the course of 12 months it is our intent to re-home every last mould and in turn, raise enough money to turn The Abandoned Chocolate Factory into a place that not only makes great chocolate, but a farm that grows great people and ideas too.
Each piece will be entirely unique and each one of these delectable pieces will help mould the foundations of The Abandoned Chocolate Factory. We believe in the power of the crowd, the people and their will to make great things happen.
