Like any good chocolate, Kim Wilson’s career path is full of beautiful complexity. The first half was a traditional corporate experience (in CA wine). The second half is quite uncharted – ask her about the boa constrictor, hitchhiking in the jungle or the romance novella inspired by her escapades. If you dare, ask her about Good King’s partner communities in Indonesia, Honduras and farm family partners in the US, and she’ll gush like a proud grandma. 😉
Good King Snacking Cacao began with two primary goals:
1. restore living wages to cacao farming communities, and
2. empower growing communities to create unique and healthy snacks that can be enjoyed both locally and around the world.
Empowering women was NOT part of its original intention, but we quickly discovered (and embraced) that WOMEN are KEY to achieving these goals.
