its new factory on the Cloverville Road, just outside the town.  Tareq Hadhad says the continued support of his family by the local community has been remarkable.

Antigonish MLA Randy Delorey says the official opening of the Peace by Chocolate factory over the weekend is the continuation of the story of the Hadhad Family.    Delorey says the community has rallied behind this family from the start.

The new facility will help the company meet increased demand for its Syrian chocolates, including a deal to supply its product to Sobeys grocery stores in Atlantic Canada.
