The 2050 Co., a Seattle-based sustainable food startup, has created a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to support the expansion of its product line. The company, which focuses on achieving zero waste, zero hunger and zero plastic by 2050, has developed a range of plant-based pasta dinners formulated with soy protein plus imperfect or surplus vegetables.
The 2050 Co. also offers smoothie mixes made with misfit fruit, which it debuted two years ago after raising more than $40,000 through the Kickstarter platform. The company uses a drying technology similar to freeze drying to remove nearly all the water in fresh produce while retaining the flavor, nutrients and fiber.
