Sparing food is in my DNA.
Growing up, my mum refused to waste any fruit or veg. Sometimes they lasted so long they had their own personality and pension plan by the time it came to eat them.
Fruit picking in my teens, I was shocked to discover just how much fruit and veg goes to waste. I decided to do something about it. I visited my local market and started saving unwanted produce. With an old dehydrator, I made snacks and sold them through local cafes, Spare Snacks was born. We’ve come a long way since then and I’m proud that we now make the most delicious, thoughtfully produced fruit and veg crisps around.
They may have been wonky once but they’re pear-fect now. Waste not, want lots.
