ABOUT GOOD GOOD
Good Good was founded in 2015 when Gardar Stefansson, Agnar Lemacks, and Johann Kristjansson were searching for solutions to diminish sugar consumption in everyday food. They were motivated by their family to make products that had no added sugars and tasted good and healthy – hence, Good Good. The trio learned that natural alternatives to sugar were the key to limiting sugar intake, and they created a blend of stevia and erythritol to replace sugar in day-to-day foods. After launching a business around this product, they experimented further by creating jams, which became the brand’s most popular line of products. The brand’s lineup now includes multiple flavors of jams, spreads, keto bars, baking mixes, syrups, and natural sweeteners.
In pursuit of its company mission to sweeten up your life without any added sugar, Good Good serves a growing audience of consumers who want to enjoy the sweet things in life without worrying about the health risks of added sugar. Since launching, Good Good has enjoyed consistent growth, and its products can now be found globally in 36 countries at 10,000+ retail locations, on Amazon.com, Walmart.com, and other online retailers, as well as goodgoodbrand.com.
