Clean Technology & Environmental Benefits
Before Food Goes to Waste
Nearly half of the fruit, vegetable and berry crops that are grown in Canada are considered second-grade or "imperfect" and are destined for the landfill.
- At source, processing reduces the carbon footprint from transportation and refrigeration
- Increased crop yield reduces methane and greenhouse gases
- NuGenesis (TM) is substantially more energy efficient than freeze drying
- By bringing NuGenesis (TM) only during harvest, equipment does not sit dormant during the offseason.
A Win for Both the Environment and the Bottom Line
The scalability of the technology allows both small and large scale industrial processors the opportunity to engage in the environmental benefits and capitilize on the portion of the harvest that is "imperfect".
For food manufacturers, food wastage at source results in a lack of access to affordable, sustainable options for food ingredients, at a time of increasing demands for traceability, accountability and quality control of food products.
