The Produce Moms Podcast Episode 19

Pulp Fact or Fiction with Ashley Miyasaki Co-Founder of Pulp Pantry

“She saw that there was a huge surplus of fresh fruits and vegetables that were being discarded every day… and on the other hand there were families who were suffering from diseases and not living their best lives because there was scarcity.”

In this Episode of The Produce Moms Podcast, Lori had the privilege of speaking with Ashley Miyasaki. Ashley is the Co-Founder of Pulp Pantry, a company on a mission to eliminate the waste created from juicing, while providing the world with delicious, healthy snacks! For every pound of juice, approximately four pounds of pulp is created. Pulp Pantry was created when the founders realized that most people just discard the pulp. The pulp contains vital nutrients that were simply adding to the waste piled in landfills across Los Angeles, and the country.

“We see ourselves as a sustainable food company that is on a mission to make fruits and vegetables as ubiquitous as grains and sugar.”

What kind of snacks does Pulp Pantry sell? The snacks created resemble granola. Think of your favorite childhood snacks, like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, only healthier. Each Pulp Pantry snack contains 50% vegetables, filled with fiber, prebiotics, and is free from common allergens. Pulp Pantry believes that food should be delicious, but also make you feel good!  

“You can have the healthiest products in the world, but if it’s not tasty, people won’t buy it. And we won’t have the impact that we want to have, both from a nutrition/health and sustainability perspective.”
