Nutri V Goodies Launched With Help From Australian Science Agency

Australia’s national science agency, CSIRO, has been working with start-up Nutri V on creating healthy vegetable snacks using broccoli, pumpkin and cauliflower that would have otherwise been thrown away or used in animal feed. CSIRO says 20-30 percent of vegetable plants are wasted and the partnership aims to ensure that all plants are used. Nutri V CEO Raquel Said explained that the company aims to upcycle waste “into a sustainable yet delicious solution”. The vegetables are picked and sorted in the morning, then washed and dried before being made into powders. Each pack of Nutri V Goodies contains two servings of vegetables. The snacks will be sold in Coles supermarkets nationally.
