The VET classes – Year 12 Creative Industries and Year 11 Small Business travelled to the Great Ocean Road Chocolaterie and Ice Creamery to apply their knowledge and expand their skills around the design process, quality processes and operating practices. Key aspects of the excursion included:
• Chocolate tasting of 12 popular products, learning about cocoa and the different techniques used by their European Chocolatiers
• Educational talk on operations, marketing, history of the business, stakeholders, innovation and social responsibility
• Making a giant chocolate lollipop to take home
• Grounds tour through 15 acres of orchards, lavender garden and kitchen garden. Learn about recycling, sustainability and property regeneration
Thanks to all involved for a worthwhile excursion and insight into this successful business.
