Given that the French consume on average 80 grams of sugar a day compared to the 25 grams recommended by the WHO, they decided to develop a line of gourmet products that are simply less sugary.
“Whether it’s matter of taste (yep, you’re grown up; you like dark chocolate now !), or for health reasons, Comète is a line of low-sugar gourmet products (and are organic of course)” they state on the company’s website comete-compagnie.fr.

The two partners plan to launch a complete range of gourmet products:
- La Pâte à Étoiler (the first) an organic chocolate and hazelnut, spread containing less sugar
- Brownies for sharing
- And finally, chocolate bars
At first, with the help of an Ulule crowdfunding campaign, Bénédicte and Amandine created"Pâte à Étoiler", an organic chocolate and hazelnut spread made in France clearly made with less sugar (33% compared to 47% on average on the market) and, importantly, no palm oil!
Their products can be found in organic stores (and on their online store: www.comete-compagnie.fr). "We also plan to rely on the network of kedgers to help us with distribution," said Bénédicte. "We've already done it elsewhere: on the Marseille side, Starter's Dough can be found at Biocoop Les Bonnes Graines, a brand-new organic shop that was founded ... by Loïc Segouin, a former kedger!"
