Roxiana Foods led by CEO, Graham C. Clarke, is excited to announce the launch of Richmond Chocolates in the U.S. Richmond chocolates are the only brand of chocolates in the U.S. that are made with 100% Caribbean cocoa beans. Caribbean cocoa beans provide an exceptionally rich and flavorful taste that cannot be experienced when eating other chocolate products available in the U.S. Richmond chocolates may now be purchased online at http://www.RoxianaFoods.com or at specialty food and convenience stores, as well as select grocery stores and supermarkets.
Richmond chocolates are made with world‐renowned Caribbean cocoa beans, which are known to result in chocolates of the highest quality, contain all natural Caribbean cane sugar, and are free of artificial sweeteners. Richmond chocolates are especially noted for their extra smooth texture, as their distinctive manufacturing process ensures that they are conched and smoothed three times longer than the industry average. Richmond chocolates have a unique, exotic and extra‐smooth taste distinguishing them from other chocolate products in the U.S. market.
Richmond chocolates are available in the following types: Creamy Milk (12 bars, 70 grams each), Whole Almond (12 bars, 70 grams each), and Full House (12 bars, 70 grams each).
Claude Clarke, Founder and CEO of Highgate Holdings Limited, the holding company for the Richmond brand of chocolates, has granted Roxiana Foods the exclusive rights to import and distribute the Richmond brand of chocolates in the U.S. Claude resides in Jamaica and previously served as Jamaica’s Minister of Industry and Commerce. He has over 40 years of experience in the chocolate industry and possesses a vast knowledge of the manufacturing and distribution process.
Roxiana Foods CEO, Graham Clarke, spent 11 years as a finance professional and has worked with companies to develop simulations to ensure accurate valuations of potential endeavors, including projects related to mergers, acquisitions, and in-house investments for an international energy company.
“My time spent conducting financial analysis of international projects led me to identify premium chocolates as a currently underexplored commodity in the U.S. market,” Clarke said.
Graham holds a Master of Business Administration from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Bachelor of Science in Professional Management from Nova Southeastern University, where he received the “Most Outstanding Student” award.
