Chocolate might be a beloved indulgence but its production is an ethically questionable one.
Kelly Go, co-founder and managing director of Auro Chocolate, is trying to change the status quo and has created a company that not only directly works with farmers, but also produces its products in the country it sources its cocoa from: The Philippines.
In this episode, she tells us about the challenges of working in the Philippines, what it is like being a young female founder and what Auro Chocolate is doing to make a difference.
We also learn about chocolate itself, myths and misconceptions and what truly makes it good.
Talking about made-up labels, taste buds and combining chocolate with dried fish, Kelly lets us catch a broad glimpse of her world.
