OUR PEOPLE


OUR FOUNDERS

Jesus

He's the reason for this company. So we honor Him first as His life and sacrifice rightly deserve. He loves each of us perfectly, he’s beyond generous, he’s the example we try to follow and he certainly can’t be put in a predictable "box." Plus, he’s smart, patient, humble and always keeps things interesting. He inspires us daily!

Kim

Our feet on the ground both in cocoa growing communities and Seattle. Her heart is as soft as her will is strong.  A corporate woman by background, she’s an unlikely candidate for an international, agriculturally based start-up. 


OUR CO-WORKERS

 

Many thanks to these intrepid women for advising, encouraging, inspiring and holding us accountable.

OUR SUPPORTERS & FRIENDS

We have been overwhelmed by incredible generosity. Countless friends and family have given in very early stages, when we were not even a seed of an idea, but rather a flower with the hope of future fruit (like this cocoa tree above). Thank you is not enough. We hope to produce a massive return on your investment, time and prayers.
