Doing good with Ubuntu Foundation tastes so good!

Hey chocolate lovers! We are sooooo proud to announce our partnership with Ubuntu Foundation, a non-profit organization committed to creating jobs and empowering communities in Kenya. We have joined forces and launched Café Ubuntu chocolate which harmoniously combines Ubuntu’s East African coffee and Ugandan cacao. For each chocolate bar sold 0,5 $/£/€ will be donated to Ubuntu’s health & education programs supporting children with special needs as well as empowering and educating women in Maai Mahiu, Kenya. This vegan treat is manufactured at our own factory in Helsinki, Finland.   As our mission is to accelerate the positive change with the world’s best chocolate, collaborating with Ubuntu was obviously an easy choice for us! We are thrilled about our partnership with Ubuntu....

Let's Keep Growing and Innovating

Hello friends, On my last blog post I already shared some of our plans for the future. If you didn't read it yet, go check it out here. Ok, let's continue sharing what's coming up in 2018. This year we will release three new product families. The first release will happen already next week (first in Finland) and maybe you have already heard of it!

ChocOats have 50% of cocoa and an amazing amount of oats. 24% to be exact! Like in our other products, as a sweetener we use coconut palm sugar instead of white sugar. In addition, there’s...

Sampsa, one of the founders of Goodio, is currently in Peru and will fly from Peru to Nicaragua to explore our cocoa sources. We will also share the sources of all other raw materials and visit the farms as...

Greetings from Our Nordic Neighbours

During the last two weeks we attended two Nordic design fairs which were held in Stockholm and Oslo. The fairs were great opportunities to finally meet face to face many of our existing B2B-partners as well as present Goodio and our chocolate to potential new clients. And of course it was a pleasure to spend some quality time with our lovely distributors, Beriksson and Oh Yes! The first trip was to Stockholm where we attended Formex. Our distributor Beriksson had put a lovely display together with all their beautiful products. This was already the second time for Goodio to attend Formex and it was so nice to be back at the fair! This time we launch our limited edition flavor...

Double Chocolate Pretzel Cookies

  These cookies are dangerously too delicious. I say this because I made them in the morning and by 5pm they were all gone. Yep, I ashamedly ate the whole tray because they were sooo incredibly good! You know that anything with chocolate gets my vote, especially when it’s double but these cookies are even more special thanks to the pretzel addition. That salty, crunchy texture really take these cookies to a next level of deliciousness! Plus they are ridiculously easy to make! Enough said, please go and make them! You will thank me later ;)   Makes about 10-12 cookies depending on the size   Ingredients: 1 cup of oat flour ( just blend some oats in a blender...
