KINVER'S very own young Willy Wonka who started making his own luxury chocolates in his family's garage is celebrating after winning orders from two top supermarkets.

Louis Barnett - who set up his own mini chocolate-making empire in the garage at his parent's Enville Road home - is finally set to see his innovative edible chocolate boxes on the shelves in Waitrose and Sainsbury's this Christmas after impressing supermarket bosses with his unique idea.

The 15-year-old, together with his parents Phil and Mary, has been perfecting the design for the last 12 months and with the help of marketing company MeltingPot Media his efforts have finally come to fruition.

Louis told the News: "It's incredible - I'm very appreciative that I'm having such amazing experiences. I'm so passionate about chocolate - I love the fact that its both science and art together."

The charismatic teenager began making chocolates after taking up home schooling after he was disgnosed with dyslexia.

His parents bought him a mini chocolate-making machine and he started making goodies for family and friends.

But word of Louis' mouth-watering hand-made confectionary soon spread and before long he set up his own company called Chokolit Ltd and started selling the 53-per-cent-chocolate treats online.

However it was when the young entrepreneur came up with the chocoholic's dream - an eye-catching edible chocolate box filled with nine dark Belgian chocs - that things really took off.

Following a series of successful trade shows, plenty of press interest and meetings with supermarket bigwigs - Louis, Phil and Mary are set to switch production to a factory unit in Bridgnorth to cope with the rocketing demand for their high quality dark chocolate boxes.

Phil said: "We're looking forward to progressing production and taking orders. We'll be rushed off our feet for Christmas and as soon as that's stopped we'll be getting ready for Easter and Valentine's Day.

"We're all very excited and grateful for the support we've had."

Meanwhile Louis has been attending the prestigious Callebaut Chocolate Academy in Banbury and the company has promised to provide all of the teenager's future training for free as well as supplying him with tunics and equipment to help him become the best young chocolate-maker in the land.

And if the teenaged chocolatier's ambition is anything to go by - the title won't be far off.

He added: "I see us in the next five to ten years going global - first to Europe and then the world."
