The world’s first mark certifying upcycled food in products gives consumers a crucial tool to address urgent climate and environmental crises through purchasing power.

Look for the new mark on upcycled products as early as August 2021!


 You can find all versions of the mark and more info on our Certification page.

Up to 30% of food is wasted, and that's a big problem for society and the planet. Upcycled food prevents this problem by creating new, high-quality products from otherwise wasted - but perfectly nutritious - ingredients.


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.
