Who are we?
First of all, all our products are organic and labelled with the European organic label. This means that at least 95% of the ingredients from the product must be organic. It also has to be clear were the ingredients come from, for example all of our cocoa comes from the Dominican republic. Last but not least no chemicals or fertilizer can be used in the entire process. We find all of these points very important, because we believe that by focusing on what’s best for the environment and for you, we want to create a better world and a better health for everyone.

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)
Sinds 1994 steunt Internationale Kinderhulp Nederland weeskinderen en achtergelaten kinderen over de hele wereld. Deze kinderen zijn verweesd, verlaten door hun ouders, verwaarloosd of mishandelt. De kinderen die worden ondersteund door IKN hebben vaak voor een langere periode speciale zorg nodig, vanwege traumatische ervaringen in hun vroege jeugd. IKN biedt deze kinderen een veilige en warme basis in een kinderdorp. Hier worden de ouderloze- en kansarme kinderen opgevoed in gezinsverband.
