Meet The Team

Nice to meet ya.

The team at Askinosie Chocolate treats each other like family, mostly because we are. Our hodgepodge of backgrounds and talents isn’t quite what you’d expect from a world-renowned team of chocolate makers, but that’s the beauty of it. Above all though, we work together to ensure our cocoa farmers, customers, fans and friends feel like family too.
