Do you ever wonder where food comes from? Well, you should. Nature N8 tours a secret food lab. And it’s actually not that secret. It’s Mattson. Based in Silicon Valley. Mattson is a food innovation company that creates food for almost all of our favorite grocery stores and restaurants. N8 grabs a bite with Mattson’s food technician Maddison Gurrola and vice president Al Banisch to discuss how they keep sustainability in mind when developing food. They dig in meat alternatives, food packaging, and upcycled byproducts from manufacturing.  A shoutout to PicCollage for letting us stay in their apartment in Silicon Valley!  Support “Waste Not Why Not” on Patreon.
