HOW IT STARTED

When I learned that 58% of all food produced in Canada never gets eaten, I got curious about why so much good food was going to waste. Realizing a big part of the problem was simply a lack of infrastructure + awareness, I became insistent on proving that there MUST be a better way. Despite not yet knowing the ropes of running a business, I had a passion for plant-based cooking + a goal of putting that good food to use. My dream: a business model that serves both our community + planet. My vision came to life after bringing Justice on board as my creative partner and co-founder of Bruized. Young, scrappy, + hungry for change, we’re taking what we’ve got and making the best of it!

Monique studied food waste in her last year of university and this newfound knowledge sparked inspiration to create a change in the current food industry. With her complimenting passions of plant-based cooking, sustainability and health, she envisioned a business and community that could highlight all these topics and thus Bruized was born.
