Crio and Co is about bringing tasty, nutrient-rich, convenient and healthy snacks to people all over the world. We are a young start up and want to make snacking that is good for you tasty and easy.
We firmly believe in nature's goodness! Our cacao beans are grown on the rich volcanic soil of Costa Rica from a single source plantation that operates under fair labour conditions and exclusively for us. Our local partners share our beliefs and have made a three year transition to organic farming, so that our Criollo cacao beans are only treated with the very best of organic resources by producers who love their plants and are passionate about their cacao beans. In fact, the beans have become almost part of their family!
After harvest, the Criollos are fermented and slowly dried in the sun. The entire process takes around 20 days. Our Criollos can take their time, which gives them their unique taste. Afterwards, the cacao beans are gently roasted at low temperatures to bring out their delicious chocolaty taste yet preserve their valuable nutrients.
Once our Criollos have had a chance to cool down, they travel to Germany and the UK to be packed up and to meet their final destination, the hands of business leaders, doctors, gym enthusiasts, healthy food lovers and chocolate addicts.
All our products are 100% vegan, paleo, glutenfree, free from any additives or preservatives, refined sugars and non-GMO.
