Grins was born from our desire to make vegan snacks that combine high quality chocolate with nuts and dried fruits. As our products are vegan and plant-based, our chocolates are suitable to those who are lactose intolerant or allergic to eggs.
Grins means “children’s chocolate smiles”. We hope that our chocolates will help bring you and your loved ones together.
We love natural, organic, and artisanal products. This is why each Grins jar comes illustrated with exclusive @marinamandarina_illustration drawings. These illustrations reflect our philosophy captured in our chocolates: the harmony between people and animals.
We have created our social responsibility programme in harmony with our belief that we can all make the world a better place for children and animals. Last Christmas we had our first collaboration with the Fundació Mona, a project dedicated to the welfare and conservation of primates.
In addition, to ensure that our Grins packaging is as environmentally friendly as possible, our jars are made from recycled cardboard bottles with metal lids that are 100% recyclable. In the future our packaging will be made from a single piece of biodegradable material.
We are Albert and Nerea, a couple united by our love of confectionery.
Albert has over 25 years of experience in patisserie, and Nerea has been a dietician and nutritionist for over 10 years. After becoming vegetarians, we realised that there are few quality snacks made from vegan chocolate and dried fruits. This, and the birth of our daughter Ona, inspired us to combine our knowledge of nutrition and patisserie to fill this gap with a delicious vegan snack.
