Why Trash Panda?

Raccoons get the nickname "trash pandas" because the coloring of their fur is similar to that of panda bears and they love raiding our trash cans for food. In the wild, raccoons eat an omnivorous diet of nuts, berries, and insects—but today we often find them eating our garbage. Trash Pandas represent our mission: to be able to identify the trash (aka harmful ingredients) when foraging for food, and find better options. Ultimately, we want to drive demand for better products and increase their availability for everyone.

We Believe:

Ingredients Matter.

Food should be made out of food, not chemicals. The Trash Panda App provides quick insights into ingredients and recommends healthier products as you’re shopping, both online and in-store. We want you to feel educated and empowered when shopping for food!

Transparency is Key.

Companies should be transparent about what they’re putting in their products, because you have the right to know what’s in your food. We want to help you understand an ingredients list so that you can make informed decisions about what to buy for you and your family. 

Better Quality Means Better Health.

We believe food is core to our wellbeing, and everyone has the right to healthy, high-quality products. Whether you’re keto, vegan, or anything in between, quality food made with real ingredients is fundamental to any healthy lifestyle.
