Abandoned Fruit Turned Tasty Snacks

The Ugly Company
POV
The Ugly Company started when a 4th-generation fruit farmer realized the waste in throwing out thousands of pounds of "less-than-perfect" fruit. Ugly Co. takes these blemished or discolored (but still super tasty) fruits, and up-cycles them to make super tasty fruit snacks. Makes sense to us.
