Chewters Chocolates – Wade Pugh, Partner & VP Manufacturing

Wade Pugh is Manager Partner and VP Manufacturing for Chewters Chocolates. Chewters specialize in one-shot depositing and high-speed wrapping, including nut butter cups, bars, squares, filled chocolates, bark bites and much more. Chewters 55,000 square foot facility, located in Delta, BC, produces many of the chocolate products you see in your local stores and in the hospitality industry.

If you’ve stayed at Las Vegas’s Bellagio, Wynn or Caesars Palace hotels, or recently cruised with Royal Caribbean or Celebrity cruise lines, chances are you’ve got more than a passing acquaintance with Wade Pugh and Chewters Chocolates. Chewters makes pillow chocolates or “turndowns” — those little complimentary treats left on hotel beds.

“There’s something romantic about it when you’re creating chocolate from scratch,” said Pugh, who is also a leading supplier to the Canadian hospitality industry.

Founded in 1984, Chewters Chocolates purchased Dynamic Chocolates in 2015, combining its chocolate expertise with Dynamic’s manufacturing capabilities. Since 2015, under the leadership of CEO Richard Foley, Chewters has implemented capital improvements, training programs, new team members and new processes resulting in improvements in productivity, quality and efficiency.
