Earlier this month, with the intoxicating smell of chocolate and other delectables, Paul & I had the great fortune to spend time with Melissa Berry, ND, owner and proprietor of Missionary Chocolates in Portland Oregon. Her compact and productive store front and factory is home to a wonderful vision and a luscious product.
From their website: What started out as gifts for her vegan mother quickly became a company, as a few months later her dairy-free truffles won first place at the Northwest Chocolate Festival in Portland, OR. This unexpected success changed what was a home-based kitchen experiment in chocolate into a thriving company. The Mission of the company has always been to build an inpatient, integrative healing center in Portland, funded by chocolate!
We hope you will check out this company and order some chocolates to savor and share!
