FAQ

Q: What's our story?

We are athletes and plant-based advocates, who are proponents of healthy lifestyles. With all of us  interested in health and nutrition and making the world a better place, every decision we make for our  business is informed by our values. We’re committed to transparency in the food system and sticklers  about offering the highest quality sweet on the market.Although candy’s appeal is undeniable, its allure has also stunted its potential to change with the times.  By creating a flavor-packed, plant-based alternative powered by whole fruits and vegetables, we are re imagining food for the next generation.We didn’t imagine a spontaneous trip to the Arctic Circle and the chance encounter with the seeds of the  world. But, through our learnings at the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, we were inspired to brighten the  confection world.
