We developed Trash Panda to deliver the transparency people deserve about what’s in their food, empowering them to shop with confidence and make healthier choices for themselves and their families.
We believe that no matter where you shop or what your budget is, you deserve access to quality food. By bringing awareness to the ingredients in our food, we hope to raise the demand for better options at a lower price for all.
Here at Trash Panda, we are a small team of remote members who are passionate about wellness. We're part of a (slightly) larger organization, Slytrunk - a small software development company.
Julia Putzeys is a certified Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) and our General Manager here at Trash Panda. She brought the original idea of the app to the team when she realized many people focus on calories rather than the quality of food which has a much larger impact on health. Since bringing the idea to the table, Trash Panda has greatly expanded not only as a team but as a community as well. Julia oversees all teams for Trash Panda - Marketing, Design, Product, and Engineering.
