Forbes: World-Class Chocolate Maker Donates 100% Of Net Profits To Charity-Maui Kuʻia Estate Chocolate

This morning, MKEC was featured on Forbes.com with a piece by Editor .

She writes about our company from start to finish, included the very beginnings of how our Lahaina Farm and Factory began. Not many people have heard about all of the obstacles our budding Farm had to overcome to get to this point of our production.
