Confetti: ‘Ugly’ vegetables turn into crunchy snacks
20th August 2020
Confetti Fine Foods is a Singaporean company and the maker of Confetti snacks, the brainchild of Betty Lu, a marketing and branding professional from the island city-state. She founded the business in June 2018 after a four-year trip that saw her visiting 40-plus countries. While in Canada, she was not only looking for the next mountain to climb but also the ideal tasty and nutrient-rich snack to take along the journey. She couldn’t find one, so decided to make her own.
“Experiencing so much beauty in the course of travels made me want to contribute to the world in a more meaningful way,” she says. “Here at Confetti, we make eating vegetables a fun indulgence by crafting nutrient-dense produce into award-winning gourmet chips that are much better for you.”
Michelin Guide – Thoughtful Snacking Can Change The World, Says Founder Of Confetti Fine Foods

Betty Lu doesn’t just want to get you to eat your veggies, she wants to change the world while doing so.
The founder of Confetti Fine Foods was snacking on yet another protein bar while hiking on a mountain in British Columbia, Canada a year ago, when a moment of ennui turned into a moment of entrepreneurial inspiration. She wondered if she could create the “perfect snack”, which she defines as “something that is tasty and true to my Singapore roots, and at the same time very nutritious, so people enjoy plant-based goodness on the go.”
She began cooking up colourful vegetable chips from her home kitchen in Canada and giving them out to neighbours and friends to try, before returning to Singapore earlier this year to start Confetti Fine Foods. The result of her experimentation is Trishaw Treats, a collection of gluten-free snacks made from nutrient-dense vegetables in Singapore heritage flavours that is marketed as being free of trans-fat, cholesterol and MSG.

The last two decades have seen a growing sense of global urgency on the topic of climate change. On 23 January, the Doomsday Clock, a universally recognised symbol of the likelihood of man-made global catastrophe, was set to 100 seconds before midnight, the closest it has ever been to date. A large contributing factor has been the livestock sector, which accounts for 16.5% of all human-induced carbon dioxide emissions.
Today, there are approximately 1.5 billion cattle on the planet – which is roughly one for every five humans. To put this into context, a ‘nation’ of bovine citizens would rank third among the world’s largest greenhouse gas emitters.
