Here at the Greater Vancouver Food Bank, we are so incredibly proud of Goodly Foods, an inspiring initiative led by the GVFB and Fulmer Capital Partners Inc in partnership with Commissary Connect and H.A.V.E Culinary Training Society.
Goodly Foods is now in production of their first product, a Hearty Tomato Vegetable Soup, thanks to a $1 Million investment grant from the Walmart Foundation.
For every 1000 litres of Goodly™ brand Hearty Tomato Vegetable Soup produced:
• Over 1000 kg of produce is repurposed and diverted from organics waste disposal;
• 462 kg of C02 emissions are averted; and,
• Over 100 hours of supported, living wage, employment in BC food processing are created.
