HMCS Vancouver, chocolate good combo for Victoria fundraiser

Navy, Rogers’ Chocolates team up on project benefiting base personnel support program

The Royal Canadian Navy has a sweet side.

During a ceremony held today (Friday) on the deck of HMCS Vancouver, Rogers’ Chocolates Ltd. CEO Larry Sullivan and Rear Admiral Nigel Greenwood, commander of the navy’s Maritime Forces Pacific, unveiled a chocolate bar wrapped in the image of a Halifax-class naval frigate.

It’s not the first time the chocolate company has teamed up with the navy. To mark the Royal Canadian Navy’s centennial in 2010, a commemorative tin, depicting HMCS Rainbow, was launched.

Similar to the tin project, partial proceeds from sales of the uniquely wrapped chocolate bars will go to CFB Esquimalt’s personnel support program.

Bars are available at Rogers’ Chocolates, 913 Government St.
