For nearly 30 years they created and shipped their specialty treats all over the Middle East and Europe. Like much of their homeland, in late 2012 the original Hadhad family chocolate factory in Damascus, Syria was destroyed in a bombing that forced their family to leave everything behind and flee to Lebanon. For three years they found themselves as refugees with little opportunity or hope. Their lives had been forever altered and they dreamed of being able to once again live lives they could love. When their family was invited to Canada, our dreams came true. With the support of their new community of Antigonish and the people of Nova Scotia, they have rebuilt their chocolate company and are once again doing the work they love.
Since Peace By Chocolate was founded at the beginning of 2016, they have been fortunate to share their passion for chocolate with new friends in their community of Antigonish, with people all across the province of Nova Scotia, and now around the world. Their desire for excellence is apparent in every piece of chocolate they produce. They passionately combine a blend of Syrian fillings and ingredients, including nuts, fruit, and spices, creating a little taste of heaven in every sweet. Inside each Peace By Chocolate product is uncompromising quality, with each chocolate a little work of art in and of itself, exuding sophistication, style and excellence. We encourage you to try their chocolate soon because, after all, One Peace Won't Hurt™.
