At Bögürtlen, we only believe in creating food that not only nourishes your body but your soul. With each store we open, we will make sure we support local farmers, other commerce, and the valuable people of the community. It is our dedicated promise to the consumers of the areas we serve to create something that helps all and nourish an inclusive experience. Responsibility at Bögürtlen continues from start to finish, whether it is finding that perfect combination of chocolate and fruit, or making sure that our products serve a purpose for your body. The commitment is simple as this; we want our products to be not only nutritious but delicious easy as that!
Bögürtlen started as a fable. Before it was a business, it was a story about a love affair between two simple ingredients: chocolate and fruit, an ongoing affair that will never be forgotten. It was before the dawn of time when chocolate and fruit first met and created what we call nutritious and delicious. When you put Belgium chocolate with the fruit of mother earth, you can only get the most fabulous, fantastic, mind blowing bonanza your taste buds have ever been graced with. Good food is an investment into your body and when you invest in your body with Bögürtlen products, you make something magical happen something that can only be called pure and utter delight. We want to continue this beautiful love affair between chocolate, fruit, and your taste buds by always making sure our love with the delectable treats we serve can be tasted by our commitment to the community we serve.
A portion of Bögürtlen proceeds go directly to the SF SPCA. As the fourth oldest humane society in the U.S. and the founders of the No-Kill movement, the SF SPCA has always been at the forefront of animal welfare. As a result of their efforts and those of our community partners, San Francisco has the lowest euthanasia rate of any major city in the United States. No adoptable dog or cat in San Francisco goes without a home, even if they have medical or other issues.
