Fine & Raw
Founded in 2008 by Daniel Sklaar, Fine & Raw is a chocolate company that began it’s journey on Williamsburg’s Northside. Sklaar and team moved their factory to their current production site in East Williamsburg five years ago and have since developed a dedicated following throughout Brooklyn and beyond. Fine & Raw crafts artisan confections – with chocolate bars, truffles and spreads among the offerings- using thoughtfully sourced ingredients and innovative low heat techniques to keep the chocolate’s raw vitality and flavor.
Evergreen has been working with Daniel since the early days. Most recently, Daniel has been taking part in the Small Food Producers Network Executive Leadership Cohort Group.
“Evergreen has been an incredibly diverse resource for me. They have helped with everything from financing, to sourcing real estate, to recruitment, to training. Evergreen is that place I go to when in need of a well informed and objective point of view for many a business topic. Working with Evergreen always results in positive ideas and forward movement for my company!” – Daniel Sklaar, Owner, Fine & Raw
While forward movement and new adventures are always on the agenda at Fine & Raw, when asked if there are any particular goals or anything exciting on the horizon for 2017, Sklaar replied; ‘I don’t like to let the cat out of the bag. Let’s just say it’s going to be a big year for us.’
