Our project

Last year, we started to develop the idea of bringing you a healthier alternative to sugars while supporting a cause. Highly-processed sugars are in most of what we eat and drink today. Over consumption of these empty calories is causing obesity-related diseases in children and adults worldwide. In Switzerland alone, there are over 400,000 diabetics and rising. In fact, the World Health Organization recommends to limit our sugar intake to 5-6 teaspoons a day. Are you eating too much sugar?

Our goal

Our goal is to bring premium natural goodness to every Swiss kitchen table with our pure coconut nectar sweeteners (Cocos Nucifera variety) while providing sustainable rural livelihoods to Filipino farmers. For every ton bought and sold, we guarantee a living wage to 12 nectar collectors, their families and their community. So we begin with 1,000 kilos!

Very soon, our certified vegan, certified organic, nutrient-dense, low-glycemic (GI-35), gluten-free and lactose-free flagship product will arrive here in our eco-friendly packaging… ready for you to enjoy!

Who is this for?

Our coconut sweetener is for food lovers like you who savour the richness and simplicity of real, whole nutritious food as much as we do! We want to give you – especially those with food intolerances and dietary restrictions – authentic, natural sweeteners totally free from additives, chemicals, bleaching agents, artificial colors and flavors.

Why support us?

We dream to be more than just a direct trading start-up. Saganà is a brand with a purpose. We believe ethical and responsible business are possible. We want to grow, add products, build relationships, encourage healthier lifestyles and increase household incomes for our partner communities: a definite win-win situation!

We also want to make our delicious, healthy and sustainable sweetener accessible to everyone. With your help, we can reach your local baker, artisanal chocolatier, hotel, fave restaurant and grocery stores in the near future.

How will we use your contribution?

Your contribution will enable us to:

  • cover our initial 1000 kilos (crossing seas now) and eco-packaging
  • pay for acquired international certifications and permits
  • buy a small, functional sachet packaging machine
  • raise funds for our 1st social project: mangrove restoration project in the Philippines

Developing an idea and product takes time and is costly. There are investments from finding like-minded and reliable supply partners, to procuring eco-friendly packaging and building a brand. More so, there are operating costs like transportation, co-working space, marketing and fair wages.

What are the rewards?

We have many cool rewards for you to choose from! Even better, if we exceed our goal it will allow us to bring you 100% natural coconut syrup, join local events and expand our market.
