HOW IT STARTED
Bruized is a women run start-up that was created from a passion project to combat food waste through education and yummy eats. I started this venture from my love for food. Being raised in a frugal upbringing, I grew up very mindful of the waste I produced. While working in restaurant kitchens was the first time being exposed to the horrendous amounts of fresh food simply being tossed. It was unbelievable witnessing first hand how much got wasted each shift, despite my efforts of packing my bag to the brim with as many leftovers I could fit. This new perspective of food systems sparked a growing passion to find a solution. I wanted to dig deeper, so I visited local farms and checked out the back of grocery stores. From the many conversations had, it was apparent this was a common problem across the food system that was being neglected. An opportunity for change presented itself and thus Bruized was born.

Our ultimate vision is to create as minimal waste as possible by repurposing imperfect produce destined to be thrown out, into healthy plant-based products. We also strive to do this by promoting a zero-waste lifestyle through offering all our products in up-cycled or reusable materials that customers can continue reusing in their own lives. We believe in the importance of taking responsibility for the earth around us and hope to lead by example through providing a sustainable option.
Our products are all made from scratch with plants and love in Toronto, ON. Health is very important to us and we want to provide you with the nourishment your body deserves. We create our products surrounding the notion of a whole food plant-based lifestyle in order for you to fully thrive and experience the many benefits this planet offers.
