A booster shot based on non-premium pears and fermented milk


Yearly 12 000 tons (300 cargo trucks) of Belgian pears is not used for human consumption, caused by the strict cosmetic standards imposed by the consumer. These pears are ‘ugly’ from the outside but, on the inside, have the same nutritional quality as premium pears have.


Team Circl-E developed Ooft, a booster shot based on non-premium pears, fermented milk and ginger. The drink does not only contribute to a food-waste-free future, it is also very nutritious due to the high amount of unpeeled fruit and the living beneficial bacteria present in the fermented milk. Ooft can be bought as a six-pack of 100 ml bottles, ideal for a quick breakfast or an afternoon snack!
