Rind Snacks is a maker of dried fruit snacks that include the peel.[1] Based in New York City, the company was founded by Matt Weiss and launched in 2018.[2] As of August 2019, Rind is sold online and in specialty food stores including Whole Foods Market and Fairway.[3] As of August 2019, the company sells four bagged varieties of product: Tropical Blend (dried oranges, pineapples and kiwis); Orchard Blend (persimmons, apples and peaches); Straw-Peary Blend (strawberries, pears and apples); and Tangy Kiwi.[4][5]

Weiss founded the company based on inspiration from his grandmother who focused on food scraps (roots, rinds, stems and skins) and lived until she was one hundred years old.[6][7][8]

In an interview with Food Dive in April 2019, Weiss commented, “About 15% of the annual 1.3 billion tons of food waste is edible peels and Rind Snacks is helping to fight that food waste.”[9]
