Superior “eating experience” because of small- batch production, with fruit centers fully ripened on the plant and artisan-dried for full natural flavor. Craveable texture: unique fruit and chocolate combination. The sweetness, chew and crunch of „candy‟ inside rich dark chocolate, coming from centers that are simply fruit. Kopali‟s bite-sized pieces are more appealing, less dense and less of a commitment than a chocolate bar. Healthier guilt-free indulgence because so pure (organic and nothing added), and because of the benefits of the naturally nourishing, energy-packed ingredients, including superfoods, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and fiber. Organic & Fair Trade certifications. Deep story of point- of-origin, positive social and environmental impact, and company founding. Eye-catching and appealing packaging, combining a modern, accessible-premium look and feel, with a sense of “escape to vacation”, and connection to nature, with POS to support. Kopali is unique in presenting healthy, organic & fair trade, with taste appeal and broad accessibility....a “grabable” branded treat, in an impulse-buy presentation. Shoppers are drawn to support Kopali, and connect deeply with the brand on an emotional level. Enjoy a delicious, healthy treat you crave – and feel good about it in every way.

Not so far from our farm we witnessed as low-flying airplanes sprayed highly toxic pesticides, herbicides and fungicides on cropland, and right onto farming workers in the field, as well as their families, their homes, schools and water supply. We witnessed the abusive labor practices that develop when large unsustainable agriculture has tremendous power and is the only source of income for people trying their best to feed their families. And we saw local farmers, our neighbors and friends, continue to use natural and sustainable practices. In many cases they were already highly organized and certified organic with the assistance of nonprofit groups. We tasted and knew first hand how much better their food was to eat than the chemically produced alternatives - better not only because it is more nutritious, pure and free of toxins, but also because it is overwhelmingly superior in taste, flavor, texture and quality. And we saw that without some assistance, these farmers would continue to be driven out of business and off of their lands, and be replaced by large-scale chemically-intensive industrial farms with unfair labor conditions. And so we were moved to create Kopali Organics, to share this naturally delicious pure and healthy food, and to support organic family farmers and their communities by connecting them with the growing market of people who care about the quality of the food they eat as well as the social and environmental conditions under which it is grown, produced and traded. In 2008, we launched our line of SUPERGOOD SUPERFOOD chocolate and fruit treats, working with and supporting farmers we are proud to call our partners in nearly a dozen countries all over the world. We present our treats in convenient grab-and-go packaging, targeting the accessible premium market. We speak to the consumer who chooses a treat first and foremost based on craving, considers health and wellness, and is learning about “green living”, ecological sustainability, organic and fair trade certification. Kopali is taking off: Every day more and more shoppers discover and become loyal fans of SUPERGOOD SUPERFOOD as well as the mission behind Kopali Organics. With distribution growing every day but limited to select premium retailers, we have begun to receive press from outlets as diverse as The Today Show, People Magazine, Business Week, and many others. We are tremendously excited to continue to have a positive impact upon the health and lives of an increasing number of shoppers, farming communities, and on the ecosystems of the planet we all share.
