Q and A with The Farmers Wives – Just Veg.

Giving Life to the Wonky Carrots!  Hit by the devastating 2011 flood, getting back on track to then lose valuable crops in the 2013 flood. It hit the farming community hard. Overcoming the adversities of the land is a story of resilience and how an innovative product assisted the farming community to survive.

A simple cut carrot convenience range has saved more than 2.5-million kilograms of Aussie carrots from going waste. Just Veg., was developed by the wives of Queensland carrot farmers (known as the customer focus team) to solve the weighty issue of wonky carrots. Just Veg. gives new life to the ‘wonky but tasty’ carrots, reducing food waste and helping busy people stay healthy. Not only that, but customers who have arthritis or are mobility impaired and do not have the strength to cut their own vegetables. #WARONWASTE
