Melissa Berry

Missionary Chocolates began in 2008 when Melissa Berry, a Naturopathic Physician, was in her last year of medical school. What started out as gifts for her vegan mother quickly became a company, as a few months later her dairy-free truffles won first place at the Northwest Chocolate Festival in Portland, OR.

This unexpected success changed what was a home-based kitchen experiment in chocolate into a thriving company — the Mission of the company has always been to build an inpatient, integrative healing center in Portland, funded by chocolate.

We hope you find our allergy-friendly truffles a deliciously good addiction ~ they are just what the doctor ordered!
