Treats you love,
an impact the planet loves

Renewal Mill is an upcycled food company that fights climate change and global food loss by upcycling byproducts from food manufacturing into superfood ingredients and premium, plant-based pantry staples.

We believe in a circular economy.

Wasted food is one of the largest drivers of climate change. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. At Renewal Mill, our vision is to create a new circular economy of food that closes the loop in today’s current supply chains, keeps valuable nutrition from going to waste, and reduces our impact on the environment. We believe that doing good should be, well, pretty darn delicious. 

We make upcycled, plant-based ingredients.

We’re building an entire portfolio of upcycled ingredients, sourced from places in the food system where nutrition is being lost (i.e. the byproducts of food manufacturing). Starting with the byproducts of plant-based milk, we’ve crafted a line of premium, high-fiber, gluten-free flours. Use our upcycled flours in your own recipes, or enjoy one of our baking mix products that highlight our ingredients. 

We do it for the next generation.

By improving the efficiency of our food system, Renewal Mill is helping ensure that the next-generation of eaters have a healthy planet and a sustainable future. Upcycling is about respect: respect for all the resources that go into growing and producing our food, and the people who do it. 

It all started with a juice shop.

Our CEO, Claire Schlemme, first came face-to-face with food waste challenges when she founded Boston's first organic juice company. At the end of each day, she was left with a mountain of nutritious produce pulp and no good solution for what to do with it. When she learned that other food makers were left with similar “pulp” byproducts but at a much larger scale, the lightbulb turned on. Renewal Mill exists to ensure that 100% of the food we produce is put to the best use — feeding people.
