VÄCKA, MEANS "WAKE UP".
THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS A CHANGE OF PARADIGM.
We are a team of people who believe in change and who work to create gastronomic contents that invite you to open your eyes.
In November we will launch our 100% vegan and sustainable cheese factory at Nest City LAB, an urban sustainability laboratory, which promotes vegan food and sustainability in all its forms found in Poble Nou, Barcelona.
We believe that it is time to take this step and continue doing what we like the most and for that we need your support.
Thank you for your interest in our project!
About the rewards
What do we do in Väcka?
We make our cheeses with the same procedures used for hundreds of years but with vegetable substrates.
Our commitment to the planet, animals and your health is in every detail, so:
- We make 100% vegan products.
- We use ecological raw material.
- Our cheeses are live foods and preserve their probiotics.
- We use filtered water to make them.
- We minimize the waste generated, our packaging is compostable and recyclable.
- We do not use single-use plastics.
They can be a great holiday gift!

¨Väcka we are Maxime Boniface and Ana Luz Sanz. We started this project in 2015 when we decided to move from Buenos Aires to Barcelona, thinking about creating a new food documentary and a brand that creates high quality vegan products. We entered, with our family in a new adventure and landed in a city that we fell in love from the first day: Barcelona.¨
They found a small place on the Seneca street in Vila de Gracia, where they were able to express their objectives: ¨Create healthy and ethical foods and raise awareness about this type of food by developing contents that make visible the new paradigm¨.
What will we do with your contributions
The money will be allocated to the production of our first batch of cheeses at the factory, the creation of our online store with shipments throughout Spain and the purchase of the utensils that we need to expand our production capacity.
To collaborate in the project you must have an account in Verkami, or register if you do not have one.
Then you just have to choose the reward you want and enter the payment information.
The payments will not be made until the campaign is finished, so you will only be charged if we reach our final goal.
We will start with the production of cheese once the campaign is over and we will deliver to our contributors their rewards at most from December 15 to 20, 2019.
The books will be sent in the first week after the Verkami campaign is over.
If we can start making the cheeses before that date (What are we trying to do), you will also receive the rewards before, but we put that maximum date to fulfill it.
We really want to get to work!
