THE CHOCOLATE BAR

THE CHOCOLATE BAR

J.S Fry & Sons, Ltd. was a British chocolate company owned by Joseph Storrs Fry and his family. This business moved through several names and hands before ending up as J.S. Fry & Sons.

In 1847 the Fry's chocolate factory, located in Union Street Bristol, England, moulded the first ever chocolate bar suitable for widespread consumption. The firm began producing the Fry's Chocolate Cream bar in 1866. Over 220 products were introduced in the following decades, including production of the first chocolate Easter egg in UK in 1873 and the Fry's Turkish Delight (or Fry's Turkish bar) in 1914. In 1896 the firm became a registered private company. It was run by the Fry family, with Joseph Storrs Fry II, grandson of the first Joseph Storrs Fry, as the chairman.
