Tell us why people should buy your product!
Our chocolate spread is a more sustainable and healthier alternative to Nutella. The rainforest, our primary source of oxygen is shrinking everyday, due to big companys like Nestle. As palm oil is one of the main components of Nutella, they are partially responsible for the destruction of the rainforest. Our team doesn’t agree with this and purposely decided to create a better alternative. This is the reason why we don’t use any palm oil and minimal sugar. Our goal is to introduce people to a healthier, more sustainable, self-made product.
