Our Story

Ever since I was a young girl, I’ve had a passion for dessert making. After I gave up animal products in 8th grade, everyone fell in love with my treats and were shocked they were vegan.
By age 15, I was catering birthday parties and converting my rural Connecticut hometown to plant-based before the industry even caught fire. The problem was, these treats left me feeling unwell.

That’s when I started experimenting with healthier recipes. My sweet treat passions pivoted towards functional decadence that did not compromise flavor or feeling.

I created a maple sweetened chocolate mousse that was indistinguishable from its dairy analog, while being rich in minerals and complete protein. 

When I moved to Portland, OR to attend Lewis & Clark College, I studied social sciences and developed an interest in our food system. 
The greater Portland region is a mecca for local food innovation--including farming, food processing, and collaborative efforts between growers and makers. 
During my final semester--shortly before COVID-19 struck--location, timing, and intuition felt aligned. I identified vegan chocolate mousse as a hole in the market.
As the pandemic brought wellness to a collective forefront, I fervently experimented in my kitchen to build flavors from local and organic fruits, nuts, and pure plant extracts. 
In Spring of 2021, I began selling Goddess Mousse at farmers markets. 
In 2022, we launched into PDX grocery chains including Zupan's, Market of Choice, and soon to be New Seasons. 
We aspire to deliver nutrient-dense indulgence through elegantly nostalgic flavors and unbelievably non-dairy texture. 
Our enthusiastic customers provide the energy to continue evolving this venture. Thank you, dearly. 
"Goddess" refers to plant nourishment. I hope that each dreamy spoonful inspires a moment of satiating sparkle and grounded sweetness.
