Covid affects us all.

We share your concerns about it, and are making profound changes to the way we do things to keep everyone and our chocolate, safe.

What we are doing differently
Based on recommendations from industry, public health and food safety experts, we have aggressively implemented:
 - social distancing: fewer people on shift, working farther apart
 - hand cleaning: relentless, peer and management monitored
 - sanitizing: aggressive cleaning of surfaces
 - information: ongoing communication to team members and public
 - execution: non-stop monitoring by management to maintain the new standards

Hummingbird Chocolate is owned by Drew and Erica Gilmour.

Hummingbird was started in 2012.

Our ten-step chocolate making process takes one week and then we let it rest for a month. Ageing is an important part of the process as it allows the aromas and flavours of the chocolate to develop.
