What would life be without sweets? Sugar is a basic kitchen ingredient found in most of what we eat and drink! It is an excellent energy source, texturing agent and sweetener. Yet, highly refined sugars today are addictive, only offer empty calories and in excess consumption, proven to cause Type 2 diabetes and other obesity-related diseases.
Thus, let Saganà bring the natural goodness of 100% natural, low-glycemic and eco-friendly Philippine coconut nectar sweeteners to the Swiss kitchen table. We aim to meet the growing demand of health conscious consumers in Switzerland seeking for premium alternative natural sweeteners with high nutritional content while supporting local recognized cooperatives and social enterprises which are often community-run initiatives. In doing so, we contribute to chronic poverty alleviation, fairer wages and sustainable rural community livelihoods.
Saganà means abundant. Our certified-organic and artisanal coconut sweeteners are to be ethically sourced from a disadvantaged region in the lush tropical island of Mindanao, Philippines. A versatile ingredient with a natural nutty-caramel flavor, it is ideal for coffee, tea, cereals including guilt-free desserts, pastries, traditional dishes, marinades, chocolate, etc.!
With Sheila, my sister and co-founder, we are inspired to use our business degrees and entrepreneurial upbringing, in helping fight chronic poverty through ethical business of high-quality, 100% natural and sustainable ingredients from the Philippines.
