Your body deserves the best

Healthy eating is best achieved with a plant-based diet, one which encourages whole, plant-based foods and discourages animal products as well as refined and processed junk. This leads to a longer life with reduced risk of disease, a healthier weight and a healthier planet.

We envision a world where every adult and every child can get the vital plant nutrients they need to be healthy and where food is produced in a way that does no harm to the planet.

Leading the charge for change

Nutrient Rescue’s founder, Michael Mayell, wants to help people to improve their diet by providing them with healthy, plant-based products. His vision is global as well — he wants to drive change in New Zealand’s agriculture industry by expanding the international market for our organic, wholefood plant powders. Once big enough, this market will encourage dairy farmers and others to switch irrigated land from intensive grazing for polluting cows to planet-healing plant production. MORE

The Story
So Far...

Nutrient Rescue is a social enterprise with a mission to inspire New Zealanders to dial up plant foods and dial down animal foods, and for New Zealand to dial down its animal agriculture and become the organic plant farm to the world.

36% of New Zealanders don’t get three serves of veges a day, and 43% don’t get two serves of fruit. Coupled with too much meat, dairy, wheat, sugar and alcohol, this micronutrient-poor diet has led to the modern epidemics of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer and dementia.
