The story of Beyond Food incorporates 3 of our favourite topics; sustainability, sports and local business. I was at the official opening of the company's new production facility in Dartmouth earlier this week and was inspired hearing co-founders Dr. Darren Burke and TJ Galiardi speak of their vision for the company and their mission to "create sustainable nutrition for health, performance and environment".
The Beyond Food website with details of how the company is taking on Canada's food waste problem can be found here.
