 One of the founders of Peace by Chocolate says a large part of their company’s success is due to the support of the local Antigonish community. Tareq Hadhad was part of a panel speaking on the topic “The Antigonish Advantage, and the Path Forward” at the Antigonish Business Forum.
Hadhad says the assistance by the community in getting their chocolate business going after fleeing their home in Syria has been phoenominal.
Hadhad says for his family to feel safe, to live in peace and be comfortable was also key to their success in Antigonish.
He says for Prime Minister Trudeau to highlight the story of Peace By Chocolate at the United Nations last fall means something special is happening here.
