At Happy Planet, our goal has always been to help our people and our planet be….well, happy! By eating well, staying active and reducing food waste, we each do our part to contribute to a better tomorrow. That’s why we started working with our friends at Outcast Upcyled Nutrition.
Outcast takes fresh fruits and veggies, that might have a few imperfections in shape or size, and rescues them from being thrown away. They process the produce into nutrient-dense powders that we then include in all our smoothies! By creating a new channel for these fruits and veggies to be upcycled, we can disrupt the food waste cycle!
All of our Happy Planet Extreme and Fruit Smoothies now incorporate Rescued fresh fruit and veggies from Outcast Upcycled Nutrition! Each year, Outcast rescues thousands of of fresh fruits and veggies and saves them from landfills. By including these nutritious upcycled fruits and vegetables into our smoothies, Happy Planet is happily helping to reduce food waste in Canada. Our mission is to rescue 100,000lbs of fresh fruit and veggies in a year – are you up to help us with this challenge?
