Dalareich Food Products had its humble beginnings in 1994 as a small family business
owned and managed by couple Mr. & Mrs. Ricardo Polot with the help of their daughter Dalareich, also known as ‘Bohol Chocolate Princess’, in the island of Bohol, Philippines. Through the years, the family manufactures unsweetened chocolates commonly known in the Philippines as ‘Tableya’, used to make hot chocolate drinks.
Starting an operation with only 5 kilos of cacao beans, the income generated was meager which barely served the family of 7. Mr. Ricardo Polot, who used to be a tricycle driver and Mrs. Elsa Polot, a street cleaner, quit their day jobs to focus and work full time in the business after one of their daughters, Dalareich, graduated from college in 2009.
