With the Philippines being one of the largest exporters of Premium Cocoa Beans, the country has the potential to create world-class chocolate products. However, the nation is yet to be recognized on the map of the top chocolate-making countries. Raquel Choa of Cebu aims to elevate the status of our chocolate potential through her love affair with Tablea.
