Product Innovation

Innovative products from surplus food.

Creativity. Resourcefulness. Patience. Innovation. All are necessary in concocting special, delicious, and one-of-a-kind products from food that would otherwise be wasted. We work with a range of local partners, from East End Brewing Company to Millie’s Homemade Ice Cream.

We are lucky to work with fantastic local businesses and partners to make these products possible!
