Simple in its ingredients, simple in its mission: Goüter is a delicious chocolate snack that uses the best local ingredients and helps reduce food waste, all wrapped up in 100% paper packaging.
We know chocolate. Goüter is our small way of helping the planet by using our chocolate know-how and rescued bread to make super-local and delicious snacks using the highest quality British chocolate.
Easy on the planet, easy on the palate, Goüter is the tasty little snack making a big difference.
Goüter is founded by Joel Manuvelpillai and Damien Andre. United by their love of chocolate and dedication to changing the agenda around food waste, Joel and Damien aren’t your average entrepreneurs. Good friends, once colleagues and waste activists, they have spent their careers exploring innovations in chocolate and different ways of doing things. Goüter is their chance to think outside the chocolate box and not play by the rules, combining their ability to make chocolate magic with their passion to create real change in the food industry.
Joel is an R&D expert and has led the development of several global innovations in chocolate, from concept to launch. His strong technical background and analytical thinking has seen Joel responsible for the development and management of new products for both artisan and global chocolate brands such as Cadbury’s, Milka and Godiva.
Paris-born and Bristol based, Joel completed a PhD at Bristol University before moving to Birmingham and Brussels to continue his chocolate journey. He is happy to be back in his second home with his wife and two sons and is ready to share the Goüter love with the Bristol community and beyond.
