The Tesla batteries have been installed, which will power our factory and keep us 100% off the grid.
Concrete slabs have also been poured to house our other mechanical systems.

Our chocolate
pieces final packaging.


We have received our first samples from Italy of our 5-gram chocolate pieces in their final packaging. These are automatically wrapped on our beautiful Italian wrapping machines which will wrap 80-90 pieces a minute! Now that our machines have been tested they are enroute to Maui.
