Short description: Pancake premix with dried vegetable powder.

We are aware that the vegetable consumption of an average Dutch child is below the recommended intake level. And with the limited choices for kid products in healthy section, we, PANGGIES, want to bring an alternative change with our simple, healthy and convenient meal alternative that increases children’s vegetable intake and saves parents’ time. PANGGIES, is a cooperative of six Food Technology bachelor students from the University of Applied Sciences ‘Van Hall Larenstein’ in Velp, Netherlands. We offer vegetable pancake mixes targeting the families with young children. And our selling channels are through ecommerce and local retailers, while providing online customer support via social media, email and our website.
PANGGIES products have competitors from other pancake mixes as well as bread, cereal or muesli, which can be consumed interchangeably to our pancakes. Our uniqueness, however, comes from a superior convenience, versatility and a high nutritional value, the vegetable powder is obtained by drying so the mineral and vitamin content is not affected.
