A HEALTHY WAY TO COMBAT FOOD WASTE
Every month, The Groundbreakers puts an inspiring initiative, product or company in the spotlight. By sharing knowledge and inspiration, we want to stimulate sustainable developments and contribute to the greening of business. This time we would like to highlight Winning Foods. This is a sustainable company that wants to combat food waste with their healthy instant soups. Below you can read how they approach this.
Preventing food loss
Winning Foods believes that food should not warm the earth, but nourish it. Food loss and animal diets are two of the leading causes of global warming, according to Winning Foods. Winning Foods is on a mission to combat food loss at the farm level while promoting plant-based diets. Inspired by people and organizations, they help make the most of every farmer's harvest by turning nearly wasted fruits and vegetables into extractable, plant-based food.
Winning Foods has launched various sustainable and healthy instant soups on the market. They have the flavors broccoli, tomato, spicy tomato and pumpkin. To prevent food waste, Winning Foods has made the soups from almost wasted fruits and vegetables. To prepare it, all you need to do is put 175 ml of hot water and the contents of the bag in a bowl or cup and you have a delicious soup. This is also super healthy, because with 1 bag of soup you get 50% of your daily recommended intake of vegetables. The perfect snack for the office. The company will soon be launching new products on the market. These include smoothies, bars and gum drops.
Sustainable packaging is a challenge. Although all packaging materials are made from recyclable and recycled cardboard or compostable bio plastic, the reality is that these materials often do not end up in the correct waste streams. Winning Foods tries to combat this by continually looking to improve or minimize their packaging, but they also compensate by planting trees in their own forest.
We are enthusiastic about this healthy snack! As far as we are concerned, 'Four hours of cup-a-soup' can become 'Four hours of Winning Soup'.
