The mission of Maui Ku‘ia Estate Chocolate Inc. is to give back to the nonprofit community. Chocolate Laulima was established by Maui Ku‘ia Estate Chocolate in 2020 as a way to give back to the nonprofit community even though the economic conditions resulting from the pandemic caused significant operating losses for the company. On weekends, guided chocolate tastings are conducted by our Founder and CEO, Gunars Valkirs. In 2023 the company expects to be able to give back 100% of net profits at the end of the year in addition to the weekend tasting fees given back throughout the year. Participating nonprofits are able to sign up for weekend dates well in advance so that we can provide a calendar of chocolate tastings and the nonprofit receiving the tasting fees for each date.
