Upcycling Surplus Food For A Better Future
Two plant-based, active and environmentally conscious guys set out to create a line of whole plant powders for use in supplements. What they discovered was a supply chain with tonnes of waste at every step and a heavy reliance on Chinese ingredients because Canadian and American goods were too expensive.

The magnitude of the waste was staggering. Over $300B and more than 2B tonnes each year in North America. What's worse is that this is coupled with growing food insecurity, kids going to school hungry every day, and the enormous burden on the environment that this discarded food causes while decaying in landfill sites in our communities. 

They realized they were looking at two ends of the spectrum at the same time and thought: "What if we could reduce food waste while simultaneously create high value, whole plant powders for local companies using fruits and vegetables grown right here in our own country!" This would be win-win.

Armed with a big idea, competitive mindset and a relentless work ethic OUTCAST was created and the mission to UPCYCLE surplus produce, reduce food waste, and help the environment began.
