Let's save the planet by being ridiculously creative with neglected nutrients

Did you know that 30% of all food produced globally goes to waste? Renewal Mill upcycles byproducts from food manufacturing into premium ingredients and products to combat global food waste.    

Hear more about our mission from co-founder Caroline Cotto.  

What is upcycling and why is it important?

Upcycling is the act of taking a byproduct or "waste" and transforming it into a product of value. When we waste food, we waste all the resources that went into growing it. If we use everything that's produced, we're creating a better, more efficient food system for the planet. Renewal Mill creates upcycled ingredients from food that would have otherwise been wasted. In doing so, we're producing food with a smaller environmental impact and a lower carbon footprint. 

What exactly do we upcycle?

Renewal Mill's proprietary production process works with all kinds of byproducts but we're first targeting the byproducts of plant-based milk production (i.e. soybean pulp, oat pulp, and almond pulp). We dry and mill these pulps without using synthetic processing techniques or unnatural fortification to produce nutritious ingredients that are rich in macronutrients including fiber and protein. 

How does the upcycling process work?

Step 1 - Harvest the byproduct from the
production process. 

Step 2 - Dry the byproduct so that it is shelf-stable. 

Step 3 - Mill the byproduct into a fine powder. 

Step 4 - Package the upcycled ingredient for
individual purchase or wholesale. 

Step 5: Create incredible treats for your friends,
family or business.

Sustainability and Craft

Sustainably sourced

All of our products are plant-based and made with upcycled ingredients.

Better packaging

We're proud to be certified plastic negative. This means we remove twice as much plastic from the environment as we use for our packaging.

Chef crafted

Our baking mixes are crafted by Alice Medrich, a five-time James Beard Award-winning cookbook author, known for her work with alternative flours.

What will we upcycle next?

Our process can be applied to many of the billions of tons of byproducts generated each year. We've worked with everything from carrot pulp to vanilla bean pulp in our R&D kitchen and weʼre just getting started. Have an idea for an upcycled product? Let us know! Renewal Mill is crafting the upcycled ingredient platform of tomorrow and we can't do it without you.
