Grá Chocolates & Favoured’s Digital Marketing Excellence

Grá Chocolates, an award-winning artisan chocolate company founded by pastry chef Gráinne Mullins, sought to expand its market reach and enhance online sales.

Their vision was to share their handcrafted, luxurious chocolates, made with the finest ingredients and native Irish flavours, with a wider audience. To achieve this, Grá Chocolates collaborated with Favoured, a marketing agency, aiming to enhance their digital presence, increase brand visibility, and boost online sales.


Grá Chocolates faced several challenges in a competitive market, including increasing user acquisition, improving brand visibility, and enhancing conversion rates. Despite having a high-quality product, the brand struggled to translate its artisanal value and craftsmanship into online sales growth.
