Our Story (& Why Animals Matter)

sad_orangutan_large

Nuubia  is a Bay Area artisan chocolatier making fine chocolates hand crafted from precious, humanely sourced premium ingredients. We love creating beautiful products and giving people a peek into the world of fine chocolatiers and where chocolate comes from.

As chocolate is derived from cacao, we're avid conservationists and strong advocates in the food industry to make products without destroying ecosystems.

Embedded in our DNA is our passion to protect wildlife and the amazing ecosystems that support life. Because of the destructive practices of the palm oil industry we AVOID all Palm Oil. Our products are Non-GMO, Gluten-free and all of our chocolate covered nuts and fruits are Vegan.  We have earned the right to be labeled "Wild Safe","Orangutan Safe" and "Cruelty-Free" .

Our goal is to make products which taste good and are good for the Earth.

Nuubia is the World’s First Confectioner to Commit to Sourcing Wildlife Friendly® Ingredients Proving People, Planet and Profit are Compatible.  As a Charter Member of the Wildlife Friendly Enterprise Network,  Nuubia is committed to sourcing "Wildlife-Friendly" certified ingredients and making a difference in people’s lives with products that showcase efforts to protect endangered habitats, species and wild ecosystems.

All our packaging is sustainably sourced, FSC certified and made to strict specifications.  We hope, in our own small way, to demonstrate that it's possible to make fine chocolates that are pure, incredible, and made without destroying forest ecosystems and non-human species.
