Montreal’s Remix Snacks have launched a new chocolate treat called Bean Bark. The concept of upcycling has moved beyond clothes and decor and into the food industry. An estimated 58% of food produced in Canada goes to waste. Approximately 45% of that waste is from bruised or otherwise “imperfect” fruits and vegetables, which are unfit to sell.
Remix Snacks have taken on the task to reduce edible waste by implementing and upcycling "imperfect" fruits and vegetables into Bean Bark. Its founders have backgrounds as registered dietarians. With their knowledge in the food and health industry, the chocolatey treat is not only delicious but is also healthy. The rich in protein and fiber dark chocolate pieces include dried pieces of imperfect apples, peaches, and cranberries.
