WNWN Food Labs, the first to bring cocoa-free chocolate to market, and Martin Braun-Gruppe, part of the Geschwister Oetker Beteiligungen KG and producer of B2B bakery products headquartered in Hanover, launched the world’s first cocoa-free chocolate croissant at iba 2023.
WNWN’s cocoa-free chocolate alternative looks, smells, tastes, and bakes just like conventional chocolate. The recipe is dairy-free, caffeine-free, palm oil-free, and also contains less sugar than conventional chocolates. The company’s mission is to provide lower-cost, flavor-identical chocolate alternatives for products in the range—with much lower CO2 emissions.
“With this partnership, we want to demonstrate that our cocoa-free chocolate alternative will play an important role within the baking industry,” said WNWN CEO Ahrum Pak. “This reaffirms their commitment to drive innovation in the bakery sector in order to promote sustainability and resource conservation.”
