We are a brand of plant-based preserves committed to environmental sustainability and social justice. In our Central Kitchen, we make plant-based pâtés, jams, and sauces using local fruits and vegetables rejected from the commercial circuit due to physical imperfections, price drops, or production surpluses. At es im-perfect®, we repurpose them and give them new value through a sustainable model based on the circular economy. Further, the es im-perfect® Central Kitchen is a socio-labor insertion space for people at risk of social exclusion.
A project of the Espigoladors Foundation
es im-perfect® is a labor insertion and food system transformation company of the Espigoladors Foundation, a non-profit organisation working to address three social needs through an innovative model of empowerment: fight for better usage of food; guarantee the right to healthy nutrition for the entire population; and create employment opportunities for groups of people at risk of social exclusion.
In 2018 we inaugurated the Central Kitchen of the es im-perfect® brand in the neighbourhood of Sant Cosme in El Prat de Llobregat. Thus, just a few kilometres from the Baix Llobregat Agricultural Park – known as the “pantry” of the metropolitan area of Barcelona, a space for socio-labor insertion and innovation in food use was born, consolidating the circular model of Espigoladors.
