Marie Monmont - Wildness!

From Nine To Noon, 10:10 am on 15 September 2017

Marie Monmont is a French chef and chocolatier who founded Wildness in Wellington. The organic vegan chocolate is made with the Brazilian fruit cupuacu, which she discovered when she and her family moved to Brazil to live several years ago. Wildness employs prisoners at Rimutaka and Arohata prisons to package the product as part of a pre-release programme. Marie is also working on another project where inmates will manufacture and package granola bars, using cupuacu.
