Cristina Arantes is the owner of Kika’s Treats. She was born in Brazil where she spent her days baking and eating chocolate. She moved to SF in 1996 and started her business 10 years later. Her company makes chocolate covered confections using alternative sweeteners such as coconut palm sugar and organic unrefined cane sugar.

Guisell Osorio was born in Santiago Chile. After moving to the Bay Area she learned to cook so she could eat the foods she missed. She started Sabores del Sur, a South American catering company in SF in 2002. In 2008 Osorio was recognized by the Women’s Initiative for Self Employment as the “Giving Graduated of the Year for both demonstrating success in her profession and for serving the community.”
