Repurposed Dessert

Brands in the food industry create desserts with repurposed ingredients

Trend - To mitigate some of the consequences of food waste, small brands are sending a message by creating desserts made with repurposed ingredients–which would otherwise be thrown out–in them. The incorporation of such ingredients into dishes and menu items doesn't have a widescale impact, but is slowly shifting the negative image that waste-incorporated foods would typically invoke.

Insight - Consumers now have a greater understanding of how both regional and global habits contribute to issues like climate change and waste around the world. Though on an individual level, they understand their impact is low, many are prioritizing small lifestyle and consumption changes in order to do their part in slowing down global issues related to the environment.
Workshop Question - How could your brand make a better impact on the environment, or do less harm?
