On January 9th, 2019, a briefing was held for the Government Accountability Office (GOA) for its first ever report on food insecurity on college campuses. Soylent sent our Head of Sustainability and Corporate Affairs, Jamie Sullivan to Capitol Hill to participate. Here are a few of her key takeaways.
Americans have a love-love relationship with food. In this comprehensive case study, we’re breaking down the Western diet and exploring exactly what this new norm of nutrition is doing to our health and environment. Can Soylent make a difference?
It’s been a busy year here at Soylent. Not only have we had some exciting product launches, we’ve also thrown our inaugural “Tomorrow’s Food Today” events. At these events, we bring together food-tech specialists, food scientists, and emerging food-tech startups to talk the future of food, sustainability, and more.
Do you have a perfect morning routine? Cool. Good for you. For the rest of us, a little help never hurt anybody. That’s why we’re so excited to introduce Cafe Mocha Powder! It’s breakfast and coffee in one and our first ever Powder with caffeine and l-theanine.
Soylent takes science seriously. That’s why, before we chose a protein source for our meal replacement shakes and meal replacement powders, we did a lot of, well, science. That meant researching factors like nutrition, bioavailability, sustainability, and environmental friendliness. All our research and study led us to soy isolate.
We’ve all been hungry. You’re probably a little hungry right now, or you could go for a light snack at least. Well, hunger isn’t the same as food insecurity. For folks that are “food insecure” physical feelings of hunger are accompanied by limited or uncertain access to enough food to support a healthy lifestyle. People who are food insecure don’t always know where they’ll get their next meal.
When we launched our ready-to-drink product back in 2015, we had one flavor — Original. Having one flavor simplifies a lot of things. It simplifies your supply chain, your naming conventions, customer decision making process, and (most relevant to everything you’re about to read) color. Original debuted in an all white bottle with a black cap and emblazoned with a small Soylent logo and the text “400 kcal.” These were simpler times. As the company has grown, so have our product offerings, and most notably, our flavor lineup. I can promise you much care and consideration goes into how we present these new flavors to the world. This brings us to our newest flavor — Vanilla.
