WNWN Food Labs, a company that develops cocoa-free chocolate, is releasing three new products inspired by classic UK favourite bars.
The UK food-tech start-up creates its plant-based cocoa-free chocolate using a proprietary fermentation process, transforming widely available natural ingredients – such as cereals and legumes – into a product that it claims “melts, snaps and bakes just like conventional chocolate”.
The company aims to raise awareness of environmental and ethical issues associated with the production of traditional cocoa chocolate, such as unfair labour practices, deforestation and habitat destruction.
The release is WNWN’s largest product drop to date and comprises a trio of products inspired by some of the UK’s most popular brands.
Vegan M•lk Choc is a classic vegan milk chocolate-style format, Choc Nut includes a smooth hazelnut paste layered through WNWN’s cocoa-free choc, while Choc Orange contains flavours of orange and grapefruit.
All bars are dairy-free, palm oil-free and caffeine-free, sold in compostable packaging and recyclable cardboard sleeves.
Commenting on the new bars, Ahrum Pak, WNWN’s CEO, said that the products have a “far smaller environmental impact” than traditional chocolate and do not rely on unfair labour practices, but are “every bit as delicious”.
She added: “With these products we’re showing the world how our cocoa-free chocolate can power the future of sustainable snacking.”
Each 48g bar will be sold for £5 and a bundle of each bar for £15, beginning 1 November.
