It started with just 5 women working in a kitchen, and they covered every part of the production process. Over the years, it went from strength to strength and began generating profits, and nowadays, it has gone online – http://www.eswatinikitchen.co.sz/ – and opened up to the global marketplace, shipping to 15 international marketplaces.

Claudio Corallo Cacao and Coffee

Claudio Corallo moved to Zaire in 1974 after several years of working in the coffee trade in Bolivia. He set up some plantations but had to move to Sao Tome Principe after Zaire descended into civil war. He quickly found that his knowledge of coffee production could be used in the production of cacao to make chocolate. However, his main objective was to develop a cacao bean that was less bitter than most African varieties, so he experimented until he found a special bean that was not bitter, and then started making a unique brand of chocolate with it. Today it is sold on his website –   http://www.claudiocorallo.com/ – and the product range is truly enticing, with products such as 70% chocolate with raisins in white muscat grape distillate, and chocolate with candied ginger and orange.
