Oregon-Based Moonstruck Chocolate Acquired By Chocolate Works


Freeport, NY — Chocolate Works, an SQF II manufacturer of branded and private label specialty chocolates and confections, has acquired all of the assets of Moonstruck Chocolate LLC for an undisclosed amount. The transaction closed last month.

“To satisfy our current demand, and in order to capture the many opportunities in front of us, this acquisition will not only add to further our capabilities, but also will give us a west coast presence to better serve our customers,” Chocolate Works Founder and CEO Joe Whaley says. 

Moonstruck is a family-owned Oregon-based brand with lifetime sales of more than $50 million.

“Leading Moonstruck has been the highlight of my professional career,” says Russell Sneddon, CEO and owner. “I am so grateful to our amazing staff and loyal customers who have supported us all these years. We look forward to watching the brand’s growth and transformation under Chocolate Works as the brand expands from a regional favorite to the national stage.”
