About Spare Snacks

Founder Ben Whitehead was shocked to discover just how much perfectly edible produce goes to waste (30% globally), so he decided the best way to tackle this issue was to make delicious snacks out of it.

Spare Snacks makes use of both wonky raw and dried apples that can often be rejected because they are misshapen, blemished, or deemed the wrong size. Misshapen and oddly sized apples often don’t fit commercial packaging and blemished apples often get discarded before they leave the farm, as they are rejected by consumers.

But at Spare, all wonkies are welcome.

To date, we've rescued over 90 tonnes of wonky produce that would otherwise be wasted or used as animal feed.
