  • Regarding the slide re NOKA Chocolate, I want to make it clear that we quickly disclosed the relationship once a relationship actually existed. We also leveraged the negative social media exposure to build visibility for the brand in mainstream media, including the New York Times, which helped to protect the brand, secured new customers around the world and achieve record sales. I think context is important when pointing to that case.
