The Ministry of Chocolate is a family-owned and run business producing high quality chocolate made on-site and supplied to a number of businesses including luxury hotels, wineries and specialty chocolate stores. From humble beginnings at Farmer’s Markets across Melbourne, husband-and-wife team Drew and Karin Maddison found it increasingly difficult to produce their wares at home with two young boys wanting to taste test EVERYTHING so they took the leap and opened a large-scale kitchen and retail store.


We have outgrown our little Malvern chocolate shop and have upsized to a little chocolate factory!
Our new address is 5/35 Lacey Street, Croydon.

Our home delivery service is available to LIMITED VICTORIAN POSTCODES.

We have made this decision as these are locations we can reach with MINIMAL CONTACT.  Australia wide delivery is NOT available at this time.

  Wholesale orders can still be placed.

Now more than ever, your local small business needs your support.  If you lose your local, you also risk losing those businesses who supply your local.

Stay safe and eat chocolate x
