Prime Minister Surprised by High Quality of Koko Loa Premium Chocolates


The Samoa Prime Minister Tuilaepa Dr Sailele Malielegaoi has given the thumbs up to Wilex Samoa’s Premium Koko Loa chocolates, comparing the new range to world renowned Belgium chocolates, as “even better!”

The Prime Minister was able to taste the Premium Range 150g Gift Packs European Style chocolates over a talanoa coffee session with the founder of Koko Loa, Tagaloa Eddie Wilson, on Thursday afternoon.

Tuilaepa says he was pleasently surprised by the quality of Samoa’s locally made chocolates, and also very impressed with the packaging and presentation.

After tasting the locally produced premium Koko Loa chocolates, Tuilaepa said it was right up there with the best in the world.

“Manaia tele, right up there amongst the best, like Belgium chocolates..”

The Koko Loa European chocolates are made from the best Samoa flavored beans – as well cocoa butter pressed from the rich butter varieties available in Samoa.

Tagaloa was able to discuss with the Prime Minister, the need to address issues of supply, in order to adequately produce high value premium chocolate products for the export market.
