When the fight against food waste benefits… our four-legged friends!
“Giving a second life to very large volumes of food" is the fundamental concept of Feed from Food, explains Marta Castrica, co-founder of this innovative Italian start-up. Led by a team of professors and young university researchers, Feed from Food recovers waste from the agri-food chain by transforming it into pet food.
Giving a second life to very large volumes of food.
Every year in Italy, more than 5 million tons of food that is still edible or which can be used in other circuits ends up in the trash can. As such, Elior Italy teamed up with Feed From Food to launch a joint operation in the Group’s Meridia central kitchen which cooks 2,500 meals every day. Feed From Food collects food surpluses and transforms them into kibbles and treats for pets. “Although Elior’s kitchen produces little in the way of surplus food, some waste cannot be avoided. Our solution allows them to recover this inevitable part of food waste,” Maria added. In Meridia, 23 kg of food waste are transformed every day into 8 kg of flour, which is then used to produce food for our four-legged friends.
