Snact makes deliciously sustainable snacks sourced from surplus fruit that would otherwise be discarded for superficial imperfections.
Snact makes deliciously sustainable snacks. We buy ugly and unwanted fruit from British farmers to act on food waste. The fruit is blended into a smoothie then dried into fruit jerky on a family farm in Kent. Our hand made fruit jerky is vegan and gluten free as it’s made with Whole fresh fruit and fresh purees. We don’t use any concentrates, additives, or preservatives, just 100% fruit. Our packaging is home compostable helping us to reduce waste even further.
At its core, Snact is about empowering customers to snack and act – hence its name: Snact = snack + act. By using surplus, Snact creates value out of food that should not be wasted, and puts value back into the food chain too – by paying British farmers fairly for the food they’ve grown.
In 2016, Snact achieved a big milestone by launching home compostable packaging – the first of its kind in the UK. Leaving plastic behind meant fulfilling a long-term goal to start tackling packaging waste as well as food waste.
Up to date, Snact has sold products made from 50 tonnes of saved UK produce, which is equivalent to 5.5 London double-decker buses. In 2017, it has already doubled its impact, recently acquiring 100 tonnes of surplus apples from Kent which will be made into snacks, and is expecting to save even more fruit later in the year.
Snact Fruit Jerky is available at all three Sourced Market locations across London.
