Straight from Canada, Julie Poitras-Saulnier and LOOP Mission are rescuing food waste by repurposing it into amazing products. From fruity soaps, dog treats and pizza crust, to even milkshake beers, cold-pressed juices and sparkling kefirs, their imagination creates endless possibilities.
LOOP is a circular economy project created by like-minded dreamers sharing a common goal: to put an end to food waste.
Their solution gives value back to rejected food by transforming it into products like cold pressed juices and smoothies, sparkling water, beer and spirits, soap and seaweed.
