Capital raising 

In late 2019, Charley’s successfully completed a crowd funding capital raising, adding another 150 shareholders. To support the capital raising, we used an online platform Birchal, an Australian leader in crowd source funding for specialty retail brands. We were a good candidate with our consumer appeal of ‘most people love chocolate’. To reward our investors, we offer discounts on purchases and complimentary access to Charleys tours.

 

Manufacturing upgrades 

On the manufacturing side, we’re using capital raised to increase tree plantings and purchase additional processing and manufacturing facilities.  Follow our pictorial journey from installing a second MMU to a manufacturing compound.

Brand building 

We want Charley’s to be a recognized as the premium brand that we are. This takes effort and support from our customers.  We also want Charley’s to be recognized for its community support.  We engaged a well-known local artist, Kim Rayner, to provide a series of uniquely FNQ works that will enhance our glam new packaging.
