Reducing food waste is the #1 solution to climate change (Project Drawdown).

Globally, ⅓ of all food produced is going to waste (FAO) across the entire food supply chain! When we send food to the landfill, we’re also wasting the energy, resources, and money that went into producing that food while producing harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

At Upcycled Food Association, we are doing our part by committing to elevate all foods to their highest and best use. We are rethinking and redefining “waste” and giving delicious and nutritious foods second lives.

20% of freshwater

25% of arable land

8% of

greenhouse gases

Are all used to make food that’s wasted or lost. In addition to that, globally, we lose around $1 trillion per year on food that is wasted or lost.

Instead of tossing aside “ugly” produce that doesn’t meet retail standards, nutritious by-products of food production processes such as spent grain, or even surplus food products, let’s commit to finding new and innovative ways to upcycle these ingredients into new products!
