New food for a planet worth living for

If we want to create a more positive impact on our planet’s future, we’d better start today by taking a closer look at our eating habits and what's on our plates. Because what we consume every day, and how it is made, is detrimental for us, our climate, and our nature.

We are Planet A Foods, the people behind ChoViva

We aim to revolutionise the food industry in order to protect the planet we love. Our goal is to provide more climate-friendly food concepts that help manufacturers significantly reduce their carbon footprint.

And we’re starting with chocolate: it not only drives us but is also loved and eaten by millions. ChoViva makes it easier for us all to contribute to saving our planet without sacrificing our passion for chocolate.

We’re on a mission to create more sustainable and locally sourced food ingredients by developing innovative technologies and methods that help us save 500 million tons of CO₂ emissions each year.

A good idea is unstoppable
