Many moons ago, at a tapas bar in Brooklyn, founders Jane and Jess met to discuss a potential new food venture and ended up in passionate conversation about the state of food waste. They'd recently learned that 133 billion pounds of edible, high-quality food is discarded every year because it’s either imperfect looking or markets aren’t sure how to position it to sell. Simultaneously, they discussed that their favorite food in the market, pizza, was also the frozen food that needed the most love.
In a proverbial "lightbulb" moment, they wondered what if they used premium vegetables that farmers have a harder time selling and accomplish all of their goals at once? After endless formulations, they landed on Scraps pizza. Par-baked and ready in 8 minutes, these handmade pizzas help you do good: by nourishing your families, our food systems, and our planet.
