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 online store is back open for 2020!

Even though we package orders carefully and with freezer pouches, due to the heat forecast in Melbourne some days, we reserve the right to delay despatch to ensure the integrity of our products is high.
