Warren Hsu can be named #1 bean-to-bar maker in Taiwan, where the craft chocolate industry is still more an exotic fancy word. Being a chef and a food aficionado who know his steak and wine, Warren is open to experiments that combine something traditional like dark chocolate with some unexpected local ingredients like Charcoal Oolong. Fu Wan's bean-to-bar factory is also the first in Tawan that went through HACCP and ISO2200 certification. Own roasting protocol, experimenting with different levels of humidity and temperature along with double fermentation put Fu Wan on the list of one of the best innovative craft chocolate makers in the world. In fact, the brand is an extension of the family resort and restaurant business that is located in a national scenic area called Da-Peng Bay. For Warren, as an executive chef, the goal was always to provide the resort's guests with the best local cuisine. Now it's also a home for the chocolate factory.
