Green Leaves created a sustainable vegetable spread based on locally derived carrot tops, rapeseed oil, pumpkin seeds and garlic. A fully recyclable package along with incorporation of carrot leaves in a product reduces the well-known problem of waste in the food processing industry. The product is vegan, lactose/gluten free and has a high nutritional value (high in PUFAs and vitamin E; source of vitamin C and iron), which makes it suitable for a large part of the population and will contribute to their healthy diet. Green Leaves spread, with its unique taste and texture, will not only go well with bread but also can be applied as a pasta sauce, salad dressing or pastry filling.
