Qota (originally called Aussielent) was founded in 2015 after we became intrigued by the idea of food that was cheap, simple to prepare, low-impact, and most importantly, nutritionally complete.
We figured it was time food caught up to the agile and innovative solutions we find in other industries, and to rethink how resources are applied to deliver food with less strain on the environment.
In 2023 we changed our name to QOTA to better reflect our offerings and mission!
Maximum nutrition, minimum waste
Every QOTA product is designed for maximum efficiency - for you, and the world around you.
PERFECTLY BALANCED NUTRITION – NO LEFTOVERS:
20% of all food bought in Australia is thrown out. Our meals are designed for no leftovers, containing the exact balance of nutrients your body needs. Simply measure out what you need, and with a 12-month shelf life, no QOTA meal goes to waste.
All of our meals are vegetarian. Eliminating meat from just one meal per day can have enormous health benefits and instantly reduce our environmental footprints. Even if we all changed just one meal per week, it would have a huge global impact.
SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY AND ENVIRONMENT
THE INDIGENOUS LITERACY FOUNDATION.
Equality begins at home. The Indigenous Literacy Foundation’s supports the next generation of leaders by lifting literacy levels in remote Indigenous communities, so all children across Australia have the same choices and opportunities. We are proud to support the Indigenous Literacy Fund and if you would like to join us, you can find them at indigenousliteracyfoundation.org.au.
WE LOVE TREES!
Planting a tree is one of the most positive things we can do for the environment! So far we’ve planted more than 2,000 trees in Perth’s Yarra Yarra Biodiversity Corridor in partnership with Carbon Neutral. The Corridor is Australia’s largest revegetation project based on carbon capture and is one of just 35 internationally recognised biodiversity hotspots.
LOOKING AFTER THE PLANET WITH MINDFUL PACKAGING
We strive to create packaging that leaves as little a mark as possible.
100% RECYCLABLE CARDBOARD MADE FROM 100% RECYCLED CARDBOARD, MADE IN AUSTRALIA.
Our packaging is compact and modular, maximising stackability and eliminating wasted storage space. All our cardboard is 100% recycled and equally recyclable in turn.
BULK POUCHES REDUCING MATERIAL
Our bulk pouches use 35% less packaging per serve than a smaller standup pouch.
