About

Moonshot is the first explicitly climate-friendly snack brand that is better for you and the planet.  Made with regeneratively grown ingredients that help sequester more carbon in the soil, Moonshot is on a mission to tackle climate change by changing the way the world snacks. 

Moonshot’s carbon-neutral crackers are certified USDA Organic, Kosher, plant-based, no sugar added and non-GMO, and come in three flavors: Sourdough Sea Salt, Rosemary Garlic, and Tomato Basil. Moonshot is also a certified WBENC woman-owned business and BIPOC-founded and owned. Snackers in the Bay Area can also purchase Moonshot at Zero Grocery, the first online zero-waste grocer in the U.S. 

Founding Story

Launched in 2020, Moonshot was born from a vision for a better world. According to research from the UN in 2019, approximately 25-30% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from food production. More alarming, scientists believe that, if we do nothing to change how we produce our food, we will have just 60 years of topsoil, the life force of our food, left. Seeing the sizeable role food plays in climate change, as well as the industry’s powerful potential to be a part of the solution, Julia Collins’, a serial founder and experienced restauranteur, set out to build the world’s first climate-friendly snack brand. Inspired to create a better world for her young son, Julia is on a mission to create an entirely new category of climate-friendly food and catalyze consumers to join the Climatarian movement.

Julia Collins is a serial entrepreneur who realized food was her calling as a young girl in San Francisco where it was the epicenter of her community. She’s spent her career building food companies, helping to launch and grow brands such as Mexicue, Murray’s Cheese Bar and Harlem Jazz Enterprises, the company responsible for the award-winning restaurant, The Cecil. She later went on to co-found Zume Pizza where she became the first Black woman to co-found a unicorn company. When she became a mother, she knew she needed to find a way to bring delicious food to people in a way that helped heal the planet for everyone including her son. 

Today, Julia leads Planet FWD, a company on a mission to tackle climate change by making it easier to bring climate-friendly products to market. The company is building a software platform for regenerative agriculture alongside the US’ first climate-friendly snack brand, Moonshot. 

In addition, Julia sits on the advisory council for Launch with GS and the Food for Climate League board, serves on the All Raise operating committee, and is an EIR for Cleo Capital. She is an active angel investor focused on funding female entrepreneurs and BIPOC founders.
