Treats you love,
an impact the planet loves
Named a World Changing Idea by Fast Company, 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.
What We Believe
Did you know that wasted food is one of the largest drivers of climate change?
It’s true! 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.
What We Make
We’re building an entire portfolio of upcycled ingredients, sourced from places in the food system where nutrition is being lost (a.k.a. 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 featuring our upcycled ingredients. It’s baking, but make it sustainable.
Why We Do It
Because, we can’t afford not to. 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.
How It Started
It all started with a juice shop.
Our CEO Claire Schlemme first came face-to-face with food waste 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 use it for. When she learned that other food makers were having similar “pulp” byproduct problems but at a much larger scale, that’s when the lightbulb went off. Renewal Mill exists to ensure that 100% of the food we produce is put to its best & highest use — feeding people.

Our baking mixes are crafted by Alice Medrich, a five-times James Beard Award winning cookbook author, known for her work with alternative flours.
All of our products are plant-based and made with upcycled ingredients.
We're proud to be certified plastic negative - that means we remove twice as much plastic from the environment as we use for our packaging.
