They will also be at the Food for Thought Market on Saturday, October 1.

Founder Helen Pattinson said: ‘We are very excited to be supporting the Emsworth British Food Fortnight this year.

‘We make chocolate, so it’s very hard for us not to be foodies.

‘What better event to be involved in than one that celebrates food – and importantly, showcases local food? The emphasis on education is a key factor for us, as with children of our own, the concept of ‘field to fork’ and teaching where food comes from is such an important issue.’

Alistair Gibson, from the Emsworth Food Fortnight organising committee, said: ‘Emsworth British Food Fortnight is a real celebration of both food and the people who produce it and it’s wonderful to have the support and involvement of Montezuma’s this year.

‘In many ways it’s the perfect partnership.’
