About ViVealth Products
Vocoa products include dairy-free, gluten-free, egg-free, soy-free, vegan hot cocoa and brownie mixes made in Manchester, NH from carefully sourced, high-quality ingredients.
We gave up dairy and meat for health reasons and compassion towards the environment and animals. We found lots of ways to continue enjoying foods we love and traveling without going hungry, but we REALLY missed hot cocoa. Sure, there are lots of recipes online to make vegan hot cocoa, but when you're traveling, stuck at work, in a rush or simply run out of your favorite milk substitute - wouldn't it be great to have a shelf-stable package of dairy free hot chocolate ready to go by simply adding water? We realized others might share in this need and decided to make Vocoa for vegans, lactose intolerant people and others to enjoy! We later expanded to brownie mix after realizing how prevalent gluten sensitivities and allergies are and recognizing how hard it was for us to find bakery items as vegans, we wanted to offer something virtually everyone could enjoy!
We make our products in small batches in a dedicated facility on dedicated equipment. We do not use or bring into our facility any major allergens such as milk, eggs, fish, shellfish, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat or soy.
We source raw ingredients from United States distributors and directly from U.S. manufacturers when possible. We only use reputable manufacturers and distributors that can adhere to complete ingredient sourcing and tracing protocols.
