Goodio adds flavour to Whole Foods
As of November, Finnish raw chocolate Goodio will be available on the shelves of the US organic giant Whole Foods’ stores in the northeast of the country.
The sales will initially begin in 40 stores. Later, Goodio chocolates might spread to more and more Whole Foods locations across the US. The chain, being one of the largest organic retail chains in the world, boasts hundreds of stores in the country.
“Whole Foods is a significant milestone for us as they pave the way for all organic products in the US,” Goodio’s COO Jussi Salonen tells Good News from Finland. “We are very excited to take the next steps in our global journey and can’t wait for what’s yet to come.”
Goodio is predicted to almost double its turnover next year. Salonen estimates that if all Whole Foods stores were to begin selling Goodio’s goodies, it’d mean a hefty 1,2-million euro boost in the company’s sales.
