Creamy tasting dairy-free chocolate arrives

Press Release – 17 April 2014

Creamy tasting dairy-free chocolate arrives

Dairy-free chocolate from UK company Moo Free is now available in New Zealand. With dairy being one of the most common food allergies in New Zealand, the introduction of a great tasting dairy free chocolate will be exciting news for many households.

Moo Free was established by Andrea Jessop after she discovered a lack of dairy-free chocolate products available worldwide for her dairy intolerant son. It took two years of perseverance to develop dairy-free chocolate that actually tasted like milk chocolate. Due to their IT backgrounds, Andrea and her husband set up a website that was easy to find and they soon received a flurry of enquiries from all around the world, including New Zealand.

Exports are a significant part of Moo Free’s business and New Zealand is one of the latest countries to gain a local distributor. Crombie & Price have brought the award-winning dairy and gluten free, vegan chocolate to New Zealand which they say is “the tastiest, certified organic, free-from chocolate we have ever discovered.” Crombie & Price search the world for the very best in natural health products, specialising in ‘free from’ products.

Moo Free chocolates are available in leading Health and Organic stores, with Easter eggs now in Naturally Organic, Albany.
