The Trupo Treats Story
Hi! We're Brian and Charlie, the Trupo Twins. Trupo Treats started when Brian walked into Whole Foods and couldn't find any tasty, creamy chocolate that was vegan. So we got to work and started a vegan chocolate company dedicated to making ethical and delicious vegan milk chocolate, while also giving back to the causes we believe in.
After becoming aware of the cruelty involved in the dairy and egg industry, Charlie became vegan. Brian followed suit 4 years later.
The twins created their Instagram page "Veggie Brothers," which was a stepping stone into their creation of Trupo Treats.
Trupo Treats is founded and launched its first product, Vegan Rice Crunch Bar, through a Kickstarter campaign.
Trupo Treats released the first vegan and gluten-free wafer bar in North America, quickly becoming a customer favorite.
"Be Kind to the People, Planet, & Animals"
For the Animals
Since going vegan, we've been active in the vegan community and even volunteered numerous times at sanctuaries all around the United States.
One of our main missions is to support animal sanctuaries all over the US by donating a portion of our profits to them on a regular basis.
To this day, we have partnered with over 100 animal sanctuaries and given them over $11,000 in proceeds. We pledge to give over 10% of net profits to animal sanctuaries and other sustainability or humanitarian causes around the world. Our goal is to donate over $1 million a year to charities by 2030.
For the Planet
We use Rainforest Alliance Certified Cocoa for our Vegan Wafer Bars. This means that our cocoa is sourced from farms that comply with the standards of the Sustainable Agriculture Network, which aims to promote sustainability in farming and protect farmers, forests, wildlife, and local communities. By using Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa, we can be confident that our chocolate is kind to all.
Our Vegan Wafer Bars are also kind to the planet because they are wrapped with recyclable wrappers, which prevents the creation of waste from single-use plastics. We hope to one day find a solution for wrappers that can be completely compostable at home!
