 HALIFAX, NS / TORONTO, ON – August 4, 2021 – Outcast Foods, a Canadian food technology company that rescues cast-off produce which is upcycled into nutritional supplements and powders, announces the launch of five single ingredient products. By popular demand, they include apple, beet, kale, broccoli and blueberry powders, all vegan, gluten and sugar free, non-gmo and organic certified.

As a leader at the forefront of the upcycling movement, the company developed the products to address the demands of consumers who have been seeking single ingredient nutritional powders in concentrated form. The powders can be used a wide variety of ways - as simple additions to anything from soups and dressings to baked goods to homemade dips and smoothie bowls.

Outcast Foods CEO Darren Burke comments, “The versatility of these products combined with the health benefits is why we are seeing such a surge in demand. People are looking for new ways to create delicious plant-based options and these innovative products are the answer. At four servings of vegetables in an average scoop, this has exceptional appeal not only for the health conscious but for people of any age – from toddlers to seniors. Not to mention, this is a product purchase with a conscience.”

With approximately 40% of food going to waste, Outcast is part of a global solution in the circular economy. New, high-quality products are created from surplus food in state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Canada using fruit and vegetables grown on North American farms. Outcast is opening their second purpose-built facility dedicated to upcycling the many different types of waste stream food in Ontario, Canada this summer. The expansion of the business will help Outcast divert more than 1,000,000 pounds of food per month from going to waste and meet the need for increased production, fulfillment and product development, such as the new single ingredient offering.

The new products range in price from $12.99 to $39.99 and are available exclusively on the Outcast Foods website, which ships anywhere in North America.
