Refreshing mint chocolate made with traditionally grown peppermint leaves. Goodio’s chocolate is minimally processed to keep the ingredients as close to their natural state as possible. From Helsinki with love, Goodio chocolate is handmade with care. All of our chocolates are vegan, gluten-free, and individually in a biodegradable wrapper.
The story of our bean-to-bar chocolate begins by carefully choosing our ingredients. We use organic, wild and primarily raw ingredients and source as many products as possible locally from Finland. Our wild blueberries, sea buckthorn, mint and cranberries are locally produced in the land of the midnight sun. To sweeten the bars, we use Indonesian and Sri Lankan coconut palm sugar which has a low Glycemic Index.
Our cacao beans originate from organic, non-GMO farms in Peru, Ecuador, and the Congo. We prefer to use raw cacao as opposed to processed cocoa because of its nutritional content. To achieve a smooth and silky consistency, our velvety chocolate is stone ground for three days in stone grinders. As a result, cocoa butter is pulverized out of the nibs, and the mixture begins to liquefy.
Once it’s reached an appropriate consistency, we transfer the ground cocoa mass to a large bucket to be tempered. Stone grinding is an ancient technique that preserves the nutritional components of the ingredient; automated grinders tend to heat up the product, thereby changing the ingredient’s properties.
Founded in 2015, Goodio is a food pioneer with a big heart. The story started with a question: “What if there was a food brand you could trust?” says Jukka Peltola, Founder of Goodio. Goodio was created on the principles of sustainability, well-being, and transparency. It’s a vision to bring Nordic-inspired flavors to a chocolate brand for the global consumer.
