On October 20th, our next Social Startups event is happening at Kahaila cafe on Brick Lane. Last time we heard from a craftivist, this time we’ll be hearing from a snactivist…Michael Dixon, co-founder of Snact, will be one of the speakers. Click here to reserve your space.
“Snact is a social enterprise developing creative solutions to food waste and food poverty. Every day huge amounts of food get wasted unnecessarily. Snact addresses that by using some of this perfectly good and edible food to make great snacts. Our first product is fruit jerky, 100% fruit, with no additives or preservatives.
We want to act on the issue of food waste, an injustice when so many people have to rely on food banks to feed themselves. That’s why we’re going to create employment opportunities for people who are affected by food poverty, giving them the opportunity to earn extra income, by selling their products and keeping the margins that would usually go to retailers and distributors.”
