Hi! Welcome to our Kickstarter Campaign! 

I'm Patricia Di Chiara and I am the CEO of Luisella Foods Inc. and creator of Luisella's delicious and safe Chocolate Spreads!

Yummmmmm!
Yummmmmm!

At Luisella Foods, we truly believe that everyone should be able to enjoy delicious foods that are Safe, Healthy and Socially Responsible.  

Luisella is named after my mother who gave me a lifetime of memories in true Italian fashion of sitting at her table watching her as she made healthy and delicious meals filled with love for her family.

When I moved to Canada, I studied culinary arts and relished in the opportunity to feed my family, as my mother had with, with nurturing food made with love. 

It wasn't long before I realised that the occurence of serious allergies was far more likely in North America than it was in Europe and many of the treats we enjoyed so much in Italy were off limits for my son if he was to take them to school. I searched high and low for allergen-free, safe alternatives for many of these items. And when the search fell short, I decided to make my own. Luisella Foods was born!

We have built a product line of Chocolate Spreads which contain All-Natural ingredients, Real Chocolate and Sunflower Seeds.

Simple, Real, and Delish!
Simple, Real, and Delish!

It is high in protein, NUT-FREE, GLUTEN-FREE, NO PALM OIL and delicious!

Our line was designed so everyone can enjoy it. Different Strokes for Different Folks right? That's why Luisella comes in 4 Flavours:

  • Smooth 
  • Crunchy 
  • Espresso 
  • Cinnamon 
4 Delicious Flavours
4 Delicious Flavours

It is time for change! Mouthwatering food that is guilt-free!

BUT....we need your help to make that change! #KickstartLuisella

Your support here on Kickstarter will help us make our delicious spread for the masses...help us get Luisella onto grocery stores shelves near you! 

 

Why Luisella?

Safe and Socially Responsible:

  • Allergen Free: NO Peanuts or other Tree Nuts!
  • Ethical: Palm Oil Free - Palm oil harvesting negatively impacts the environment, wildlife and the people who live near production areas.
  • Healthy: No added Sugar, No MSG. No Palm Oil. Real Chocolate. Lots of Protein
  • Environmentally Sound: BPA Free, and recyclable packaging

Thank you to everyone who has shown us they believe in healthy, safe, and nutritious food by supporting our KickStarter Campaign! 

XO,
Patricia

Risks and challenges

Deciding to make delicious, healthy, socially responsible food is a no-brainer!

What's not a no-brainer? Making it and getting it to the people crying out for it.

Luckily, we have some big brains to help us. Luisella has partnered with suppliers, food scientists, consultants, and design and media superstars to help us get it right the first time and get it out the door to you.

Grocery manufacture is rightly so a strict business and it seems every time you turn around you see a new product promising it's healthy, it's good, and it's delicious!

We are working with the experts to make sure our products are the real deal! We source real food. Then we get the folks in the know to certify it. Then we make sure we do all the right things to keep it delicious and safe. Then our marketing gurus work their magic to make sure everyone knows about it!

This is where you come in! Like every new dream, it needs some wings to fly and we are hoping this Kickstarter Campaign will give us the wings we need.

Your contributions will go towards making a lot of the stuff, so everybody gets to see what we've been talking about. Production costs money as does getting the right parties to certify it, and getting good, quality ingredients and packaging. Funds raised from this campaign will go towards our first large production run.

What's next...well then we all get to sit back (well...we're too busy for that) and watch it fly off the shelves and into happy tummies everywhere!
