About

Instant meal replacements and supplements in compostable pods.

Stop skipping meals and give your body the nutrition it deserves. It’s a tasty meal in seconds that will save you time, money and designed with your health and the environment in mind.

 

  

Nu Pods are instant, single-serve meal replacements with ingredients to help your body thrive, served in a compostable pod. Using our specially designed shaker, you simply add water, shake and drink. Nu Pods are designed to leave a minimal impact on our environment – they are easily recycled in your 'Green Bin' or home compost. Plant food becomes food for plants!

Designed for people on the go, from conquering the concrete jungle, exploring the world or working to a deadline, we have your nutrition covered when you don’t have time to sit down and enjoy a healthy balanced meal. Made for good people who make bad food choices.

We were sick and tired of fast food. Literally. But unfortunately, we also led busy lifestyles, always on the go. This led us to constantly make poor food choices. It was not that we wanted to always eat junk food or fast food, it was time that was dictating what we were eating!

So instead of constantly skipping meals and living off fast food and noodles, we decided to do something about it. We created the very first versions of Nu Pods and are using it to supplement a portion of our daily requirements. I saw the changes immediately. More energy, better focus and I also lost my love handles. It was easy to carry around, can be stored anywhere, in my car, at work, in my backpack.

We have designed nu pods with your health in mind. All plant ingredients and biodegradable pods, that break down into organic matter, meaning we don't contribute to landfill!

I wanted to help others who had the same struggle as I had, so we created Nu Pods. Our crowdfunding campaign is going to help us launch and get our first run of manufacturing and production completed.

Nu Pods are dietary supplements and meal replacements. Founded in 2017 by two guys looking for a healthier ‘fast food’ option, Evan and Dean are creating a product designed to provide the goodness of a balanced meal in a single serve – just add water, a Nu Pod and shake. Evan and Dean are on a mission to contribute to the well-being of people and the planet with a vision for longevity through the strength of community, innovation and positive action. 

 

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges
Yes, unfortunately running a business and producing both a hardware and a food product can come with some risks. We strive to go above and beyond and build a quality product and want to avoid over-promising something - so here's a few potential issues that may arise.

MANUFACTURING: Creating the tooling to manufacture both the POD and various shaker parts can be time consuming and requires expert knowledge to get it right. To meet our high standards and minimise the possibility of a leaky shaker we're working with manufacturers with a track record for producing quality food-safe products. There will likely be some minor adjustments to improve the final product. Pre-production prototypes are made to test and refine the product and allow us to incorporate our adjustments and those suggested by experienced manufacturing partners. These will always be for the benefit of you, the consumer, and we will let you know exactly how and why any are made.

FULFILLMENT: To minimize the possibility of manufacturing and logistics setbacks we have partnered up with manufacturers and logistics partners with a proven track record.
