Victoria Kichuk – Founder & Chief Chocolate Officer of Cocoa Beantown attended the Business Forward Females lunch as a guest speaker on September 12, 2023. From the very beginning, chocolate was destined to play a big role in Victoria Kichuk’s life. She was born on National Chocolate Chip Day and since that time has spent a lot of time researching, or, shall we say, “engaging in professional development.” Victoria’s professional background includes serving as a corporate blogger for Lindt Chocolates and Hotel Chocolat (UK) and being one of a handful of invited participants in the first ever Colombia Chocolate Week in 2019, organized by the internationally recognized organization Uncommon Cacao. She has also presented chocolate programs at the WGBH Wine & Food Fest, the New England Chocolate Festival, the Stay at Home with Chocolate Festival, The Chocolate Expo, the DC Chocolate Festival, and has appeared on Boston Public Radio. In 2017, she founded her company, Cocoa Beantown, a Boston-based chocolate tour and tasting company.
