What do we do?

Green Anchor is a food company whose mission is to provide sustainable food solutions using creative thinking; turning “problems” on their head to create delicious solutions and then closing the loop by planting trees with some of the proceeds.

How does Green Anchor Do this?

 

We work closely with suppliers to secure amazing ingredients that are traditionally overlooked, such as excess produce, imperfect looking but great tasting fruit and vegetables, or by-products from food production.  Then, we use our skills and many years of cooking experience to create something truly delicious.  Green Anchor aims to plant a tree for every product sold.

When does Green Anchor do this?

All the hard work has been done for you, which means that when you make a purchase from Green Anchor we will automatically donate to our tree planting partners. This means that you too will be making a difference simply by enjoying our delicious food.

Why does Green Anchor do this?

One third of all food produced is lost or wasted according to the Food & Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations.  This is around 1.3 billion tonnes of food, costing the global economy close to $940 billion each year.  We think this is a crime, so we want to help to fight this but we want it to be easy for the end user.  Food that is wasted represents a waste of vital resources, such as water, land, energy soil, seeds. With 8% of greenhouse gasses heating the planet caused by food waste, we want to help to change for the better.  Utilizing these amazing ingredients will contribute to this change and by sharing our knowledge we can make a more positive future.
