CNN features Peace by Chocolate in its story!
In Canada, one of the country's most talked-about -- and sought-after -- sweets companies is the product of a family's enormous loss.
Assam Hadhad launched Peace by Chocolate out of his kitchen in his adopted home of Antogonish in Nova Scotia after a missile struck his factory in Syria and his family finally decided to flee the danger and the death of the civil war. His family has now shared its story of displacement and new beginnings with audiences ranging from TED participants to the Canadian prime minister. As Assam's son Tareq, now studying in Canada after having been a medical student in Syria, says, "maybe we started from zero, but we brought our skills with us."
