Seconds

Consumer Packaged Goods

At Seconds™ we are on a mission to reduce food waste by making sustainable snacking delicious, healthy & fun.

With 40% of food wasted in America alone, we could no longer sit on the sidelines. 40%?! Hard to believe, right? It's true, 80 billion pounds of food is wasted in America every year. That’s over 200 pounds per person.

How does this happen? A big part (43%) happens at home. Forgetting about something in the back of your fridge, shopping while hungry, or an aversion to leftovers are just a few common habits that lead to wasting food at home.  While we cannot rescue food from your fridge, we can work with fine food makers and produce growers to upcycle pulp and peels to make an amazing snack cracker- Seconds™!
