nuubia21 September 2011 - Santa Monica, CA.  Nuubia Chocolat, artistic creators of environmentally responsible chocolate confections, has announced a strategic partnership with Orang Utan Republik Foundation (OURF). This partnership will help strengthen OURF’s efforts in building support from ethical businesses committed to true sustainability and conservation education.  Nuubia Chocolat demonstrated their initial commitment at OURF’s Annual Fundraiser by providing chocolates to the VIP guests and offering a live auction prize of a chocolate-making class at their Pleasanton, California kitchen.  Alexandra Saunders , President of Nuubia Chocolat plans to continue supporting the goals of OURF as the company grows market share of their exquisite French chocolates.  Having been raised in Indonesia, Ms. Saunders understands the plight of the orangutan and how sourcing “orangutan safe” ingredients can contribute to the species’ long-term survival.  OURF President Gary Shapiro is excited about the partnership, and sees it as a cutting-edge issue. “We applaud small companies that are mindful of their impact on environment and biodiversity as they seek to create and market quality products” stated Shapiro.
