©2020 Upcycled Food Association. 

We're building a food system where all food goes to its highest and best use

Up to 40% of food is wasted, and that's a big problem for society and the planet. Upcycled food reduces this problem by creating new high quality products from otherwise wasted - but perfectly nutritious - food. 60% of people want to buy more upcycled food products, and that's because 95% of us want to do our part to reduce food waste. 

Join us as we build the sustainable food system of the future.
