The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations estimates that a third of all food produced for human consumption every year is lost or wasted, amounting to 1.3 billion tonnes per year. This is atrocious and it must end.
SeedFuel is doing its part to add value through upcycling activities and partnerships in a circular economy approach. SeedFuel provides high-value, innovative products upcycled from the by-products of the fruit-processing industry. Some of these products include highly nutritious mango kernel flour for home and commercial bakers as well as mango butter for the cosmetics industry.
By upcycling fruit by-products, quality manufacturing jobs are created in impoverished areas and waste is kept out of landfills.
