Speaker - Jamie Hutcheon, Chocolatier Director, Cocoa Ooze Ltd
In 2008, at the tender age of 17, Jamie Hutcheon created his luxury chocolate brand Cocoa Ooze. A chef trained at some of the best establishments in Aberdeen, he grew the business until 2010 when he left the security of his catering job and took the plunge to run the business full time.

Jamie’s entrepreneurial spirit has been recognised through being selected as a finalist for the 2011 and 2012 JCI Creative Entrepreneur Award and the Scotland Food & Drink Young Talent Award in 2012 and also the Grampian Business Awards Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year in 2010. Further successes include being nominated as a Bronze winner for the Grampian Food Forum Innovation Award 2011, a runner up for the PSYBT Regional Business Award 2011 and a finalist in the Scotland Food & Drink Excellence Awards for Retail, Confectionary and Snacking in 2011.
