Wild Kauai Chocolate was born out of the passion of lead chocolate maker,Debbie Williamson, after she and husband, Mark Williamson, moved to the island of Kauai. A long time lover of craft chocolate, Debbie began to experiment with making healthier chocolate and soon fell in love with the complexities of the bean-to-bar chocolate making process.
Debbie’s longtime business compadre, Kellie Lin Knott, become involved in the business when Debbie made the leap from hobbyist to certified chocolate maker.
In February 2020, Lance and Amy Hale travel to Kauai, meeting with Debbie and Kellie concerning the sale of Wild Kauai Chocolate. The Hales agree to buy Wild Kauai Chocolate. In June 2020, they assume ownership.
