Brett Beach & Tim McCollum: Bean-to-Bar Chocolate Makers

After doing volunteer stints in Madagascar, Beach, 35, and McCollum, 33, returned in 2008 to found Madécasse, a chocolate company in which every step of the process—not only cultivation but also packaging and distribution—is done locally. The result: a lot more income for workers. Says McCollum, "In some ways, making high-end chocolate in Africa is changing the course of chocolate history."
