The Booja-Booja Company
For its Keep Smiling Vanilla M'Gorilla Alternative to Dairy Ice Cream
Our judges said, "Amazing!"
Keep Smiling Vanilla M’Gorilla is a healthier alternative to dairy ice cream. Made without refined sugar and with 100% raw ingredients it contains just four natural ingredients which remain below 45°C throughout the manufacturing process in order to preserve their optimum nutritional value.
Unlike conventional ice creams, this frozen dessert is made with creamy cashew nuts which are low in saturated fat and high in minerals and vitamins A,D and E. The Booja Booja Company also use agave, a fructose syrup from the agave cactus which releases energy slowly, making it much healthier than refined sugar and particularly helpful for diabetics.
All the ingredients come from sustainable sources, from suppliers whose values and ethics The Booja Booja Company trust. The company use only non-animal ingredients in their products which put minimal strain on the planet's resources and absolutely no stress on animals themselves. The tubs are 100% recyclable.
The vanilla extract comes from Africa's Virunga National Park where its farming supports the park's precious ecosystem. The vanilla farmers have a close relationship with the park authorities and this industry gives local farmers the chance to make a legal living without resorting to cutting down trees and poaching. In this way vanilla farming both supports the local community and protects the precious natural environment.
The Virunga National Park is also home to the critically endangered mountain gorilla and The Booja Booja Company donates 5% of profits from the sale of Keep Smiling Vanilla M'Gorilla to Fauna & Flora International who are part of the International Gorilla Conservation Programme.
This initiative enables The Booja Booja Company not only to contribute financially to the important Gorilla conservation work done by the International Gorilla Conservation Programme (IGCP), but also to help raise awareness of this work and the precarious plight of the gorillas.
