Award-winning flavours and positive social change, that’s us at Harry Specters. Mona, Shaz and their son Ash, who has autism, are behind this social enterprise.
While visiting a chocolate shop on a holiday in Scotland in 2011, Mona discovered a perfect way of combining her passion for creating positive change for people with autism with her love for chocolate.
Ash came up with the name and a year later, Harry Specters was born - dedicated to crafting the most delicious chocolates that create employment for young people with autism. They are involved in every aspect of the business – from making and packaging the products to administration, design and photography. The chocolates have won numerous awards for their taste and hundreds of young people with autism have a brighter future. Every lovingly handcrafted bar and chocolate helps improve the lives of people with autism.
Since the company inception in November 2012, we have a total number of 260 beneficiaries which mostly includes young people with autism. They contributed to the business in different ways. This includes making, packaging and selling chocolates for our online and corporate customers. Some of them were also involved in back office, design work and photography. In summary all of them learnt new skills resulting in increased confidence, hope, and aspirations for their future.
