Chocolate - a story of success and peace!

Peace by Chocolate is a story of new beginnings. As newcomers to Canada, the Hadhad family rebuilt their family run chocolate business into a symbol for international peace and hope. For more than 20 years, they shipped their specialty treats all over the Middle East. Like much of their homeland, the Hadhad chocolate factory was destroyed in a bombing that forced the family to leave everything behind and flee. With the support of their new Canadian community in Antigonish Nova Scotia, and the people of Nova Scotia, they have rebuilt their chocolate company and are once again doing the work they love.
