Did you know that each year 30-40% of the total US food supply is thrown away?
It happens up and down the supply chain, from the farm to the grocery store, to your kitchen garbage. That amount of waste has an enormous impact on our environment and landfills, accounting for 7% of the world's emissions.
Unfortunately, food waste is a problem we're dealing with at Plant Bites as well.
As we cut each Bite into a uniform square for portion control, we're creating six bags of waste for every 20 bags of product.
But that "waste" isn't actually waste. The scraps come from the same ingredients, taste delicious, and fuel your body just as well. The only reason they're brushed aside is because that they don't look uniform.
