The story behind the 100% plant based, cruelty free and guilt free DIY dessert bar - Gojè Yarraville
Welcome to episode 5 of the ‘weekly dose of you4ia’ podcast. It was a pleasure sitting down with Jelena and Goran, the owners of one of the most iconic plant based dessert bars in Melbourne, known as Gojè (pronounced GO-JAY).
Goran and Jelena have changed the way we look at dessert by revolutionizing the frozen yoghurt. They have taken a whole foods, plant based approach by designing a self serve frozen yoghurt bar that is 100% vegan! All of their amazing yoghurt as well as their delicious toppings are hand made on site from wholefoods, with no pre – mixes or syrups and made with organic ingredients where possible… too good to be true hey?
In this episode we cover:
Jelena and Goran’s background and how they started the empire known today as Gojè.
They spoke about their personal transition into veganism and how they transitioned their business completely plant based.
Tips on resilience and how to stick to your guns through difficult periods.
The process of making the frozen yoghurt and the ingredients they use to make it 100% plant based.
Their personal experience running a business together as a couple, and top tips on how to separate work from their personal relationship, to avoid conflict.
They touch on their eco friendly products, the breakdown process of these and how they personally are going above and beyond to reduce their footprint.
