Every Body Eat,
Eliminate 14 allergic ingredients and break dietary restrictions
When two souls with the same experience and the same ideal fit together, every body eat was born.
After giving birth to her first child, Trish Thomas, the founder, developed obesity, hair loss and fatigue. Eating shrimp and red wine even took her to an ambulance. Since then, she began to pay attention to her diet and found that when she did not eat corn, dairy products and gluten, her sleep, face and health improved. Therefore, it became her goal to make food without dietary restrictions.
Another founder, Nichole Wilson, found that his children suffered from severe lactose intolerance, his husband was allergic to eggs and shellfish, and he was also allergic to dairy products and gluten. In order to protect the food safety of the family, Nichole began to make special foods, such as snacks without dairy products, to protect the family from pain and discomfort.
When the two founders met, they hit it off and quickly developed a cooperative relationship.

The magic of renewable agriculture is that it can absorb carbon dioxide in the air into the soil, convert it into organic matter and store it in the soil with the help of microorganisms, so as to fix carbon and restore and regenerate the ecosystem. According to the survey, it is estimated that from 2020 to 2050, renewable agriculture can store about 18 billion tons of carbon dioxide, which is equivalent to reducing 118 million cars per year!
Shortening factories and their distance from farms can also help reduce carbon emissions. Moonshot’s flour processing plant is located two miles from the farm, and the sales store is only 85 miles from the processing plant. As the time on the road is reduced, the food can be fresher.
Meanwhile, moonshot brand also adopts 100% recyclable packaging materials. It is reported that the next step will be to develop household compostable inner bags. This is a very difficult technical challenge – compostable packaging not only protects food for several months, but also decomposes itself at the right time. Moonshot promises that once it has the ability, it will use home compostable packaging!
