Nibble offers fresh and healthy snack pairings that give you life between meals. Our perfectly portioned combinations of vegetables with protein dips help you stay satiated, enabling you to make a better food choice the next time you eat.

Imperfect Produce

In the US, 1 in 5 fruits and vegetables grown don't fit grocery stores' strict cosmetic standards -- the crooked carrot, the curvy cucumber, the undersized apple -- usually causing them to go to waste. Imperfect purchases these “uglies” directly from farmers, and because they look a little funny, you can buy them from Imperfect at 30%-50% off grocery store prices - making fighting food waste easy and affordable!


Life has its challenges but eating healthy shouldn't be one of them. Joyloop is on a mission to create delicious veggie products that are easy to prepare and a joy to eat. They source the highest quality produce and simply let the veggies speak for themselves. Joyloop products include zuccini spirals and cauliflower "rice."

Hosted by the NextGen Advisory Board.
