The initiative of the project is the global food waste. Food is lost or wasted throughout the supply chain from initial agricultural production all the way to final household consumption.
Fresh fruit and vegetables that deviate from what is considered optimal are often removed from the supply chain during sorting operations. For example in terms of shape, size and colour. This results in a lot of wasted edible food. These products from the residual streams are also full of flavour and nutrients.
By developing a new, healthy and delicious product, we give these residual flows a new purpose. This product is VeggieSlices: dried slices based on vegetables, such as tomato. There are various applications for the dried vegetable slices. Think of wraps, sandwich toppings or as sheets for wrapping sushi.
