Consumer demand for "hedonistic chocolate" has helped drive up sales and profits at Hotel Chocolat as it gears up for its best Christmas.

The luxury chocolate chain, which has a store in Belfast, said sales rose 12% to £91.1m in the year to June 26, with pre-tax profits up from £2.9m to £8.2m.

The group, which is listed on the Alternative Investment Market, added that sweet treats made with less sugar were also proving popular.

The firm said: "We see an increasing trend that consumers want uncompromisingly delicious and hedonistic chocolate that's also made with responsible amounts of sugar."
