In 2010, while studying at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Dylan Butterbaugh made a friend who was researching the potential success of growing cacao in Hawaii. Shortly after, Dylan spent six months in labs at the College of Tropical Agriculture learning the processes that turn the fruit into chocolate. When the chocolate industry in Hawaii began to emerge, he identified a need for local processors and launched Manoa Chocolate.
