About this project

We are Jem Raw Chocolate— independent, award winning, artisans bringing together exotic flavors from around the world. We are creating healthy indulgences connoisseurs treasure. Our chocolate and nut butters are blended with pure raw organic (fair trade) ingredients free from gluten, dairy, soy & processed sugar. Our Jem’s are sprouted, stone ground, and hand assembled in Bend, Oregon.

All products are Raw, Vegan, and Certified Organic by the Oregon Tilth.

Jem Chocolates rose from an ideal and dream shared among three individuals: Tim Moore, Jen Moore and Nik Rueth. They envision a world where well-being and abundance radiates from every person in every facet of reality, where growth is seemingly inevitable and the joy of service flows through the ether of connection like gentle wind passing through fallen leaves. This emerging world experiences health in the balanced harmony of nature and medicine as the beloved gifts from the natural world. They foresee a time when the most powerful and effective Superfoods are delivered in the sacred vessel known as Jem.

What people are saying about Jem.

Victoria Moran -5.0 out of 5 stars Heaven in your mouth.Do you want to know how good I think this stuff is? I sent a jar of it to the guy who created the "Best Thing I Ever Ate" show on the Food Network because this is, truly, the best thing I ever ate.

Mary C. Simmons -5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked!,  What a great product. Once you try it your hooked. It has a special flavor that I can't put my finger on, but that dosen't really matter it's great and better yet it's good for you.

Maureen Koplow  -5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious!,This is an absolutely marvelous product! I ordered all 4 flavors and then ordered more. It's so much better than plain peanut or almond butter!

Jennifer L. Souva "veganf or the animals" -5.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING!, I was hesitant to order this because of it's price, but I did it anyway. Well, it was worth the price because it is the most amazingly creamy and sweet concoction I ever tasted.

Risks and challenges

We are a small start up business and like any business there are many challenges that present themselves. Our biggest issue is cash flow and the ability to scale our business to meet the intense demand we have for our products. Whence we we are looking to KICKSTARTER to help overcome these challenges buy providing the cash we need to buy the grinders we need to grow.
Thankyou you for your help!
