Who are we?

Vegan & lactose free
Beside that our chocolate is organic, it’s also vegan! Normally a lot of chocolate contains dairy, but we replaced those ingredients with rice milk. This way, also people who want to eat vegan or are lactose intolerant can also enjoy our chocolate.
We find it very important that there is no trace of gluten in our products. That’s why all of our gluten free products are produced in a dedicated gluten free facility.
100% of the cocoa we use for our chocolate is fair trade cocoa from the Dominican Republic. We find it very important that the farmers get a fair price for their cocoa. But maybe you’re wondering why our products don’t carry the fair trade logo. Well that is because recently we found out that the extra contribution for carrying the fair trade logo goes directly to big companies in Europe for marketing. None of this money goes to the people who need it! That's why Bonvita decided to not carry the fair trade logo and instead donate that money directly to the Dominican Republic by supporting an International Children’s Care project in the Dominican Republic.
International Children’s Care (ICC)
Since 1994, International Child Aid Netherlands has supported orphans and abandoned children around the world. These children are orphaned, abandoned by their parents, neglected or abused.
The children who are supported by IKN often require special care for a longer period, due to traumatic experiences in their early childhood. IKN offers these children a safe and warm base in a children's village. Here, the parentless and disadvantaged children are raised in a family context.
