Discussing :: Interview: Jane de Borchgrave

Chelsey’s Rachel chats to Jane de Borchgrave, chocolate lover and creator of Kokoleka. Tell us your story: What did you do before Kokoleka?  I have been in marketing and new product development for years and have always been fond of food and cooking; I love the creation of flavours in food and have always been a huge chocolate lover; I am that person who adds extra chocolate to any recipe that calls for chocolate; I cannot remember a day when I have not had chocolate in some form!
