LCVP Trip to Chocolate Factory

5th and 6th Year LCVP students went on their LCVP trip to the Chocolate factory Of Ireland in Rathwood, Co Wicklow. They learned about the process of chocolate production and experienced the art of chocolate making. Also they had a chance to ask any questions to John, the owner of the factory, who gave a great insight into what it takes to become a successful entrepreneur.
