Conquering the chocolate market

Founder of ChocXO, Richard Foley, shares his journey towards creating his leading chocolate company and how the brand is disrupting the industry.

Chocolate runs in my family, giving me more than 40 years of experience in the chocolate industry, all the while working with, and alongside, many of the industry’s top chefs and master chocolatiers. My great uncle and grandfather were confectioners in Ireland and my father carried on the tradition when he moved our family to Canada in 1957 and started Foley’s Candies. As a child, I worked in that manufacturing plant alongside my three siblings.
