Tony’s Chocolonely – On the Chocolate Regular

Tony’s Chocolonely – On the Chocolate Regular

We’ve shared some wonderful stories of On the Chocolate Regular companies over the years, but I’m not sure if anything compares to the intense, powerful journey Teun van de Keuken undertook to reach the status of slave-free chocolate maker. When an attempt to get himself arrested for committing a crime by eating chocolate doesn’t quite land the impact he’d hoped for, Teun instead created Tony’s Chocolonely. Today you’ll learn his, and Tony’s Chocolonely’s, inspiring story.

About The Author

Eric Battersby

Experienced writer, indie filmmaker (Hollywood 27 and Change The World Films), and best-selling Kindle author, Eric has this to say about Chocolate Connoisseur: “Our goal is to not only help create a strong community of enlightened chocolate lovers, connecting them with passionate chocolatiers and chocolate makers, it’s to also help the chocolate industry rise up and do the right thing by its cacao farmers and everyone else. Just like what I do as a filmmaker, I want us to do our part here to change the world. We’re not just building a magazine -- I think that’s part of being a responsible media company, and I think our readers completely embrace the concept as well..” For Eric's other life as an activist filmmaker, visit, to learn how his nonprofit is currently tackling the controversy surrounding GMOs (genetically modified organisms in our food supply).
