ANINA makes ready-to-eat food from recycled materials in the Middle East.

The launch of “meal-in-a-pod” varieties by ANINA Culinary Art aims to demonstrate the marriage of convenience, saying “no” to food waste, and “ugly” food and art. The pod, which uses “ugly” vegetables, provides a single-serving meal that can be cooked on the stovetop or in the microwave. Every disc-shaped container holds roughly two full cups of vegetables, or 40% of an adult’s daily nutritional needs. This makes them perfect for people looking for a quick, wholesome, and delicious meal solution at work or at home. The line, which was introduced in Israel, consists of three dishes: a Vietnamese bowl with rice noodles and vegetables; a Mediterranean bowl with vegetables, bulgur wheat, and black lentils; and pasta primavera with vegetables, Italian herbs, and pasta. A meal made of plants that is high in fibre, high in protein, and free of additives and preservatives can be found in every ANINA pod. Currently, the products are available online, in premium and boutique bakeries, and in co-working space outlets. The technology is patented throughout, from the food-grade lamination process to the pod structure. Using this technology, fresh vegetables are formed into flexible sheets. Our technology is based on the production of vegetable sheets. Mor Wilk, VP of R&D, asserts, “We can form any 3D structure and create any recipe in a decorative pod, each set to its own unique controlled cooking time. While the inner core of the container is made up of a variety of natural ingredients, the outer shell of the container is made of dried fruits or vegetables. Depending on the recipe, the ingredients are different. We’re altering our eating habits “Anat Natan, co-founder and CEO, explains. The future of consumer culinary experiences is something we’re also shaping. The ANINA meal capsule also addresses today’s fast-paced lifestyle, which forces consumers to frequently compromise on the quality of the food they eat.” The company intends to import the meal pods to the United States after a successful launch in Israel.
