Snact

http://www.snact.co.uk

We make fruit snacts from fruit surplus to act on food waste.
Tonnes of perfectly good fruit get thrown away in the UK before reaching shops. We turn that surplus into healthy snacts that contribute to one of your five a day. But a better food system is also about the people involved in it, so as we grow, we plan to employ people who’ve been affected by food poverty to help us make and sell our snacts.

HarvestGeek

http://www.harvestgeek.com

The core ideal which we believe at HarvestGeek is that the economics of large-scale industrial agriculture is not a sustainable proposition thus the need for efficient, tested and reproducible methods of small-scale food production. We'd like to see communities producing the bulk of their own food. The benefits to this we believe are many.
By empowering the local food movement, communities will benefit from new employment opportunities, money spent on food will stay in the community, fossil fuel use due to food transportation will drop off sharply, impoverished areas access to (healthy) food will increase, and we will be seeding a new generation with an appreciation for food, their health, and their connection to the Earth.

We also know that we want to spread the idea further, so we have created the GroCycle Urban Mushroom Farm to test our ideas, and have designed an easy to use Mushroom Grow Kit to enable you to grow your own gourmet mushrooms at home from waste coffee grounds. We hope you enjoy the process!
