Working at
True Gum

We love chewing gum, just not what is out there, so we made our own. A plastic-free chewing gum free that’s vegan and biodegradable. From our own chewing gum factory just outside Copenhagen, our small team of passionate chewing gum aficionados are on a mission to re-invent the chewing gum industry, for good. Learn more: www.truegum.com   Most chewing gum producers today rely on the same ingredients they did 20 years ago. These small chewy chunks are filled with questionable substances such as plastic (petro-chemicals), aspartame, and BHA (hormone-disturbing). Other producers use some natural flavouring, but still rely on a synthetic gum base. Each pack of natural True Gum is made in Copenhagen, using the best high-quality ingredients. Our gum is not only better for your body, but also better for your soul, as it's biodegradable and way better for the planet. Better ingredients and a better attitude, gives you are better gum.
