FAQ

It must be very expensive to save fruit, right?
Yes, it is. Especially since we rescue fruit and vegetables that no one else wants, with our bare hands. This means that we peel, wash and sort tons of fruits so that only the goodies get into our products. It's an incredible craft, but you could also say that we choose to make juice the hard way. We are last in line before fruit and vegetables become food waste. Every product of ours is the result of hard work, commitment and a strong belief that we can reduce food waste. 

 

Where do you get the fruit and vegetables from?
Fruit and vegetable wholesalers, grocery stores, farmers and fruit basket suppliers.


Are your products made of old fruit and vegetables? 

No the opposite! Usually, it's a small percent of a huge party of fruit that doesn't meet the high quality requirements. Unfortunately, that's enough to throw away all of it even though the majority is completely fine to consume. We peel, wash and sort tons of fruit and vegetables by hand. The good parts turn into juice, smoothies and chips. The fruit and vegetables that end up in our products, turn into compost soil, so that new fruit can grow. That way our hard work of rescuing fruit comes full circle and we can close the loop.

 

How much fruit do you save?
It varies, but it's usually several tons per week. 

 

Why do you not only use rescued fruit?
Sometimes we have to purchase fruit in order to save fruit! Carrots, for example, are sometimes in need of the company of tangy oranges to taste really great. And imagine how boring it would be if we couldn't spice up our apple juice with ginger? When in need, we simply add fourth-class sorted fruit from our fruit-saving friends. It's all about gaining financial sustainability and building a flexible fruit rescue-factory so that we're always ready to rescue whatever needs to be rescued! 

 

Where can I buy your juices?
Send an email letting us know where you live to truls@rescued.se, and he'll answer!

 

Why do your juices taste different from time to time?
Unfortunately we can't control what kind of fruit and vegetables we recieve. Everything depends on the season, variety and ripeness of the fruit. Lucky us as we love variety and honest products! 

 

Are your drinks pasteurized?
Yes!

 

Why do your drinks last so long without additional substances and extra sugar?
Pasteurization is key! We heat all drinks during production to give them a longer life, that way we also contribute to reducing waste in-store! 

Are your drinks lactose and gluten free?
They totally are!
