At FAVES we believe there is always potential to do more and be better. That includes both for ourselves, our families, and for the planet. We believe it so much that we decided that the industry standard was not good enough, so we set out to raise the bar higher. Our candy heritage drives us to deliver a real benefit and be a truly sustainable product; it is our pathway to possibility.
We go above and beyond to make sure the health benefits our community is seeking in our products are reflective in the output of FAVES.
The first product engineered by PurePlus+® is a climate candy made from upcycled fruits and vegetables. These candies provide real nutrients from produce, while adding no processed sugars, making them an especially good sweet for people with diabetes, children, or anyone hoping to improve their health!
Each contains micronutrient fibers from the PurePlus+® proprietary line of vegetables including pumpkin, squash, sweet potato, carrots, and beets! And the best part – all you can taste is a sweet fruity treat! This is stealth nutrition at its finest. How else do you get a pumpkin to taste like a strawberry?
Each serving of FAVES® offers a full serving of fruits and vegetables. It is estimated that 90% of Americans do not eat their daily servings of fruits and veggies. FAVES® makes it easy and fun to add more produce to your diet, which is why they are wonderful for kids. If you have a picky eater, this may be your new favorite way to sneak your kids more fruits and vegetables!
Our mission is to illuminate the power of fruits and vegetables for the health of people and the planet. FAVES has set out to solve the climate crisis by preventing food waste and upcycling perfectly good fruits and vegetables to create a candy that's good for you and good for the planet.
FAVES works with local farms across the US to procure imperfect produce that would otherwise go to waste. With each purchase of FAVES, people are saving 6 carrots, 3 beets, 1 sweet potato, 1/2 squash, 1/2 pumpkin that provides 6 servings of fruits and vegetables.
For us, it's personal. FAVES creates products that are unparalleled in quality, are good for people and the planet. At FAVES we care about providing people with better options on their quest to live a healthier lifestyle, while simultaneously creating a more sustainable food system. Our goal next year is to upcycle 2.2 million imperfect fruits and vegetables from local farms and every year after to double the amount saved.
