Upcycled food is the easy way for anyone to prevent food waste via the products they buy. Upcycled products prevent food waste by creating new, high quality products out of surplus food. It’s an innovative approach to food waste because it is the first consumer product-based solution, making it highly scalable and economically sustainable.
Upcycling food is an ancient tradition based on the philosophy of using all of what you have. It's about doing more with less, and elevating all food to its highest and best use. Most of all, upcycled food is about reducing food waste, by creating high quality, nutritious food products out of the nutrients that slip through the cracks of our food system. But what is 'upcycled food' technically?
A team of experts from Harvard Law School, Drexel University, World Wildlife Fund, Natural Resources Defense Council, ReFED, and others officially defined “upcycled food” in 2020 for use in policy, research, and more:
“Upcycled foods use ingredients that otherwise would not have gone to human consumption, are procured and produced using verifiable supply chains, and have a positive impact on the environment.”
These dogs don't know that with every bite they're getting an immunity boost, but they'll thank you for it!

We are really liking these cod skin treats. They're crunchy, but not messy. Murphy can't get enough!
Bentley gets seasonal allergies, so this year we're going to focus on her gut health. PET ADE has made that so easy!
Typo is picky, but he LOVES these sweet potato fries. I like that they're just one ingredient but also have the gut health benefits.
I've been using these treats to train my puppy and they work great! She loves the taste and I love knowing that she's getting a little extra boost of probiotics.
These are my new go-to treat when I want to show my dog some extra love. She begs for more and has no idea they're healthy for her too.
