Hadhad Family: Chocolate Shop and n.s .,

hadhad family: Back in 2016, they opened up a chocolate shop in Antigonish, N.S., called Peace By Chocolate and quickly became a Canadian success story, according to CTV. But most recently, their treats have reached a new orbit of success with astronauts floating in the International Space Station ISS posing with their treats in zero gravity. But now, the Hadhad family, who fled their home in Syria six years ago, can count themselves among that group. We are always looking to go beyond boundaries,we are always with the belief that, even the sky is never the limit, said Tareq Hadhad, a Syrian refugee and founder of Peace by Chocolate. Each of the chocolate bars have the word peace printed on them, translated into numerous languages from around the world, including Spanish, Arabic, French and even Mi'kmaq, which is spoken by the Indigenous peoples in the region. His family opened a factory just outside of their home in Antigonish last year, with their shop in town regularly filled with customers. ( As reported in the news.
