Companies with a conscience

Sally FitzGerald checks out three companies doing things the right way

FOOD

Snact • snact.co.uk

Started in 2013, Snact is founders Ilana Taub and Michael Minch-Dixon’s ‘delicious protest’ against food waste. With tonnes of perfectly good fruit being thrown out every single day in the UK, Snact takes surplus produce and turns it into tasty snacks. That doesn’t just save a banana or apple from going to waste with every snack made, but they have fantastic nutritional value for us too! The fruit comes from farmers with too much supply, or apples left on trees, and Snact pays to pick them. The fruit is then turned into a chewy fruit ‘leather’ or banana bars that are available at Amazon, Ocado, Planet Organic, As Nature Intended, Selfridges & Co or direct from Snact’s website. The innovation continues, as in 2016 Snact partnered with TIPA, a developer of sustainable packaging, to create a fully home compostable packaging – the first of its kind in the UK. Place in a home composter (or council food waste collection) and it becomes a fertiliser for soil. Ingenious!
