our values

Bendicks Mints

From the best ingredients, through to our charity work, our focus is always on the highest quality and making a difference


Bendicks Mint Chocolates Quality MintThroughout our long history, all our luxury chocolates have been made with the same attention to detail.

For us fine ingredients are not an indulgence – they are a necessity.

We source our own ingredients; from our use of fresh peppermint oil, to our handmade honeycomb, we develop our own recipes, and then we make our own products.


Bendicks Mint Chocolates Cocoa Beans 95% Cocoa SolidsOur people are dedicated to nothing less than the pursuit of dark chocolate perfection.

Again, for us everything starts with our chocolate. We use only the finest grown cocoa beans from a variety of sources. Much of our chocolate contains unusually high 95% cocoa solids. Making our fine dark mint chocolates complex and rich in the way that only a Bendicks chocolate can be. The perfect contrast to the intensity of our other ingredients.

Today, we still pay the same attention to detail at our factory as we did when our chocolates were made in a tiny basement beneath our shop in Kensington.

This means that we continue to delight the most discerning of customers.

Our Heritage

There are few premium confectionery companies that can point to a heritage as long and as rich as ours.

Our story began in 1930, when Mr Oscar Benson and Colonel ‘Bertie’ Dickson acquired a small confectionery business in Kensington, London.
