How many of us think about Food Sustainability when we shop for snacks? Sustainability is a buzzword and we have to start taking it really seriously not only for our health but for our environment, out planet. We have opted for healthy snacks for quite a few months now and in this pursuit, we recently explored products of homegrown healthy & sustainable snack foods brand Re- Foods.
Do you know?
Sustainable food isn’t only about the food itself. It’s a combination of factors including how the food is produced, how it’s distributed, how it’s packaged and how it’s consumed.
Re- Foods: A healthy snacks start-up with a focus on Sustainabilty
Re- Foods is a healthy snacks start-up that launched in Singapore late last year, and one of their core focuses is sustainability. Their products are All-Natural, Plant Based made with Minimally-Processed Ingredients.
- Re- Foods product packaging is either reusable, recyclable, or compostable.
- They have switched to 75% renewable energy for powering their bee-friendly almond orchards in Australia.
- Re- Foods educated Quinoa farmers in Peru in organic farming, which has improved soil nutrition and allowed them to grow and sell healthier, more profitable quinoa.
- They have set up co-operatives in Vietnam to ensure that the cashew farmers receive fair prices for their crops.
- Re- Foods coffee processing factory in Vietnam implemented water-saving measures that reduced water usage by 38% over a 5 year period.
Re- Foods products that we love
100% rich cashew taste is what makes all the difference. We use for our breads and in for baking muffins. Cashew butter is a great source of energy. Packed in a reusable glass jar, this heart-healthy and smooth Cashew Butter contains no added sugar, salt, or oils.
We give it to our kids and they love it. This is a great choice over processed, overly sweet cookies. You can taste the goodness of almonds and cashews in every bite. These Vegan and gluten-free cookies contain no cane sugar, preservatives, and other hidden additives.
Re- Foods packaging comes with a strong message that reminds us to love our environment. These cookies are packed in reusable tins to reduce the environmental damage caused by single-use plastic packaging.
Say no oily, unhealthy food loaded with bad fat and embrace the healthy goodness of Re- Foods’ nuts and mixes. Their Lightly Salted Cashews are a plant-based powerhouse of nutrients and provides protein, healthy fats, magnesium, manganese, copper, and vitamin K. They taste very refreshing and are instant energy-booster for sure.
What we also love about it? The manufacturing of these nuts and mixes support women in Vietnam through safe employment.
This one is surely going to be every mom’s favorite. Re-Foods’ Strong Instant Coffee delivers the perfect punch to start the day and in fact, you can drink it whenever you want! The caffeine in coffee has been shown to boost memory, mental functions, adrenaline levels and metabolic rate.
When you drink this coffee, you are supporting water-saving measures because Re- Foods reduced water usage by 38% at their Vietnam coffee factory.
