Peace By Chocolate Inc. - Tareq and Isam Hadhad
Peace By Chocolate produces artisan chocolates as a way to spread love and peace in a big and complicated world. This is their first year attending the Pugwash Farmer's Market, and they're really excited!
This family business was embraced by Canada, Nova Scotia and the community of Antigonish. During the Syrian War, like much of their homeland, the Hadhad chocolate factory was destroyed in a bombing in 2013 that forced the family to leave everything behind and flee to Lebanon. They lived in a refugee camp in Lebanon until they were able to become Canadian citizens and rebuild their chocolate company.
Now, Peace by Chocolate is a strong believer in social justice and it works to support peace building projects throughout Canada.
On days when they are not at the market, you can find their products in the shop on Bay Street in Antigonish, online, or in a number of wholesale locations around the province.
