Oliver, Vince, Stefan and Dominik met playing hockey in high school. In 2015 they all had other professions, when Vince inherited a small plot of land in the Philippines and brought back some cocoa beans. The 4 friends got together for a weekend of chocolate making and got hooked on the process. After making chocolate every weekend and getting feedback from friends & family they launched Kasama in late 2016. Now, each friend has a unique role in the chocolate making process.https://kasamachocolate.com
Kasama means friendship and collaboration in Togalog, the main language of the Philippines, where Vince sources cocoa beans from his family farm and village.
