During a typical grocery store visit, we’re used to picking up the plumpest, freshest fruits and vegetables to take home. That means slightly imperfect but still edible and nutritious produce can't be sold off traditional shelves. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, almost half of all edible fruits and vegetables are wasted, contributing to the 1.3 billion tonnes of food lost around the globe per year.

One Montreal-based company is helping to combat food waste by making tasty cold-pressed juices out of reject fruit and vegetables. By partnering with major food distributors, like Mucci Farms in Ontario, they source nutritious produce that is still perfectly good to eat. Loop Juices have over 1.5 kilograms of fruit and veg in each bottle with creative combinations like pear, spinach, romaine and jalapeño in its Undercover juice and cantaloupe, clementine, carrot and turmeric in King of the Hill. 



Loop Juices are fresh and tasty without being too sweet. Cold-pressing techniques ensure the maximum amount of liquid is extracted from the produce without losing any nutrients or vitamins. Not only will your conscience and stomach appreciate these juices but your wallet will too since they retail for about half the price of its competitors.
