Sheringtons Chocolate

Jennie Sherington, BSc International Business Jennie Sherington, BSc International Business

Sheringtons Chocolate is a confectionary business that aims to reduce as many barriers to healthy eating as possible.

"I studied International Business at Loughborough and felt uninspired to go to a large corporate business and choose one ‘department’ to stay in for the year – I wanted a broader range of experiences and to apply my degree in its most real sense. I also got to channel my entrepreneurial streak into a project I was extremely passionate about (health and tasty eating) which meant every day was completely inspiring and fun!

My business was built around this >> Problem: a love of confectionery .vs. a desire to be healthy. Solution: reinvent traditional chocolate bars using nutrient-dense, 'clean' ingredients to boost your energy levels & health! 

Loughborough helped me to create and prepare my business plan and gave me the confidence to convert this image of what I wanted my Placement year to be in my head, into a reality."
