What we strive for:

"To make every beep at the checkout a signal for a healthier and greener world."

the method to our madness.

We believe that consumption can and should have a positive impact on the planet. We will soon be coming out with our Impact Report, where you can do a deep dive on what we are doing as a company, and what we want to accomplish in the near future. The report includes everything, from production, to our reforestation project, and even the sourcing of our cacao beans.

We make impact tasty.

OUR STORY SO FAR:

2016

From engineers to chocolatiers.

Mathias, Thomas and Christian were fully on course for a promising career in engineering, until one faithful day in their university library.  They wanted a snack to get them through their study period, but could only find sugary junk-filled snacks.  Next thing they knew, they had purchased a chocolate do-it-yourself kit, and were testing it out in their kitchen...

2017

Doing it ourselves.

Our recipe is novel. We wanted to do something new, something ingenious. Other chocolate manufacturers felt and still feel that we're naive and that we use too many hemp seeds & nuts. With that being said, we wanted to do it our way, and compromising on the product was not an option for us.  We then decided to start manufacturing on our own in Dresden, Germany.  Right from the start, we focused on organic and plastic-free packaging — and at that time, due to the lack of alternatives, we had a cumbersome (yet trendy!) cardboard two-piece packaging.

2018

From green to climate positive.

The first year of the grind had ended, and we gained a foothold in our first organic shops.  We couldn't continue with producing on our own, and finally found a co-packer in Germany.  More importantly, we entered into a partnership with Eden Reforestation Projects and launched our "1 product = 1 tree" principle.

2019

From nucao to the nu company.

The team was growing – and so were our product ranges. In a crazy crowdfunding campaign, we won a listing at the German drugstore chain "dm" with our half-finished vegan protein powder "nupro". Nucao started to gain more recognition, and became more competitive as we advanced to a new level of delivery quantities.

2020

Go big or go home.

We finally realised that a lot had happened with our company in the past few years – but not much had changed in the food industry. We then established our goal of 1 billion trees planted by 2030, and became more aggressive in our efforts – with more products, larger partners and a motivated team of now over 50 employees.

let's grow together.
