The food we throw away is still food. It takes a lot of land, water, fertilizer, and effort to get food from the farm to our tables — so it’s important for our food to stay in the food system.
There are ways to make the best use of food that’s uneaten. First, feed people. Then, feed animals that produce food for people. Both options align with the EPA’s food recovery hierarchy and the hierarchy of destinations for achieving United Nations Sustainable Development Goal Target 12.3.
We receive shipped Food Grounds at our feed manufacturing facility where we turn them into a safe chicken feed ingredient through inspection, screening, heating, and blending.
We’ve worked through most of the necessary scientific and regulatory processes to distribute our nutritious chicken feed ingredient commercially. We’ll share more on our progress later this year!
