Alain M d'Aboville:
After a career as a management consultant and executive, mostly in Europe, in 2010 Alain started working for the State Department in cocoa producing countries such as Bolivia and the Dominican Republic. This allowed him to further his passion for chocolate and start producing his own bars. He perfected his chocolate making skills in 2014 by attending a specialized course at the University of the West Indies in Port of Spain (Trinidad). He also started giving presentations and speeches on chocolate in the US, in France, the Dominican Republic and even in Afghanistan during his last posting for the US Government. Alain is currently working with a land owner in Puerto Rico to create a cocoa plantation of high-quality beans. He also participates in building a small chocolate factory in Port au Prince (Haiti) with an existing Haitian cocoa exporter.
