Animal-free, lactose-free, silky smooth chocolate
ANIMAL-FREE DAIRY CHOCOLATE
We partnered with Perfect Day® to swap regular milk with animal-free dairy in our chocolate recipe. Perfect Day® invented the world's first milk protein made without animals, so you can enjoy the taste and texture of traditional dairy, produced without the downsides of factory farming, including lactose. Animal-free dairy is created by fermentation using microflora. Fermentation occurs everywhere in nature-in soil and in plants. The process helps forests flourish and helps keep our guts healthy. It also makes our beer fizz, our yogurt thicken, and our bread rise.

Designed for Lovers of Chocolate and Lovers of the Planet
CHOCOLATE DESIGNED FOR THE LOVER OF CHOCOLATE AND ANIMALS
Mars is committed to delivering better moments, and with CO2COA we're combining our passions for delicious chocolate and a healthy planet.
While it's true the rich flavors and creamy texture we love in chocolate partly come from dairy, it's also true that cows are one of the biggest sources of greenhouse gas emissions that negatively impact the Earth.
Thanks to Perfect Day's animal-free dairy technology that allows us to replicate a real dairy protein without the animals, we are proud to introduce CO2COA - no input from animals, less greenhouse gases for the planet, and the taste you know and love.
CO2COA was designed holistically with sustainability in mind. From our sourcing of Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa (Find out more at ra.org) to paper-based packaging, everything is made from sustainable materials. All the taste but none of the hang-ups.
Enjoy a moment with CO2COA - full of love, to chocolate and our planet.
Q: What does the brand name CO2COA mean?
The name CO2COA is a thoughtful and playful way to pay homage to Rainforest Alliance Certified cocoa, and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions (CO2) in product and packaging sourcing. CO2COA -- the marriage of CO2 reduction and COCOA.
Q: How is CO2COA chocolate animal free?
Animal-free chocolate means just that: chocolate produced without any animal involvement (like in dairy!). We maintain all the careful crafting art from cocoa to silky smooth chocolate, but swapped the milk with animal free dairy protein from Perfect Day.
Perfect Day animal free dairy is created using a fermentation approach that cultivates microflora –similar to the process that makes beer fizzy, yogurt thicken, and bread rise.
