NearyNógs Stoneground Chocolate
We are NearyNógs, Northern Ireland's first and only Chocolate manufacturers. Ethically sourcing and importing our own Cacao Beans from several origins like, Sâo Tomé, Dominican Republic and Ecuador. We hand sort our beans, roast, crack and winnow, stone grind and temper the chocolate. This process gives us an award winning high quality chocolate guaranteeing an authentic chocolate experience.
A home grown family business based in South Down, Northern Ireland, we began the business as a means to an end in 2011. The eldest Neary was leaving the comforts of home for the slums of Delhi India and needed funds. Dorothy inherited the family recipe of chocolate confectionary via her mother and spontaneously decided to create chocolate to make funds for the trip to India. The result was success, asked to do wedding favours following this event and markets, the business grew.
About this time, another of the Neary daughters became ill, needing specialist treatment regularly from Great Ormond Street Hospital, London. This forced Mr. Neary to have to leave his job and join the business to help have flexibility and support family care and interests. The Neary's decided to pioneer something new, as more and more people were asking for a chocolate without additives. The first stone grinder was purchased to produce 2kg of chocolate over 3 days at a time, but this empowered the production of chocolate "without" additives. The NearyNógs team have now finished upscaling their machinery to produce even more high quality chocolate goodness at a capacity that was thought impossible only a couple years earlier. Since 2011, we have won awards, sold chocolate to Brussels in Belgium, we sell locally, nationally, U.K., Europe and sometimes further to N.Z. Australia and U.S.A.
Thank you for supporting us on our Chocolate adventure and we hope to share our story and products with you for many years to come.
The name NearyNógs has a story in itself. Grandpa Neary used to write childrens stories, that were never published, about a group of children called the NearyNógs. Neary is the family name and Nóg is a gaelic word for "youth". Therefore the name is all about the Family, Life, love and Chocolate.
“There is nothing better than a friend,
unless it is a friend with chocolate.”
