We will be using MBW shipping as they are able to come to Iona for pickup twice a week.
Their cost is approximately $70 a shipment anywhere in Nova Scotia.
We will split this shipping cost with you for a flat rate of $35 a shipment.
A minimum order of $250 is required for all shipments.
Please allow a window of 7-10 business days for your order to be shipped.
(Ideally these products will be ready to ship as orders come in but as this is a new venture we are unsure of the demand)
Chocolate has several requirements in order for the shelf life to be maintained as listed above.
For one, it needs a room temperature environment of approx 20C.
If your environment is too warm, the chocolate can be compromised (this will give a grey/white color to the chocolate).
This phenomenon has nothing to do with shelf life. However, once affected by it, the shelf life rules no longer apply.
One very warm day followed by one cool evening can change the finished product (even if it just arrived in your shop the day prior.)
You will have a difficult time selling products that are affected by this as all of a sudden they will look old and their quality is diminished.
If you think your environment is too warm, then I recommend that you do not attempt selling our chocolates in your shop.
It’s our name and quality at stake.
In our shop we have a controlled environment for storage of our chocolate and have run shelf life tests for years. It is cool, dark and protected from smells, temperature changes, and humidity.
The chocolates can be compromised by:
~ direct sunlight (even through a window for 5 minutes)
~ temperature changes (they like a consistent 20C)
~ consistent scents such as from candles and perfume (the products will take on the taste/smell)
~ being kept in a fridge (especially in summer.) This can cause condensation droplets to form on the chocolate.
Water on chocolate will change the appearance of the chocolate and compromise the taste and texture.
We keep samples of each batch in house for routine quality checks during the run of its shelf life.
So you think you’d like to be a retailer? Send an email to the link below and let’s start the discussion.
We are a small business.
We are fairly efficient after 18 years, but we do have our limitations.
Therefore, we may not accept all applications.
As well, we would not want to saturate a location/market.
( retail environments & locations may also factor in)
Attention: Excessive use of chocolate can lead to hysterical bouts of euphoria, and uncontrollable finger licking. Use caution whilst indulging in said chocolate. Also, this...
In a 9-year Swedish study of more than 31,000 women, those who ate one or two servings of dark chocolate each week cut their risk for heart failure by as much as a third.
Heck yea. Chocolate for the win!
