Agro commodity processors

The Position Paper – a colloborative endevour to further strenghten the Upcycling ecosystem

Our key takeaways for you

Agricultural commodity processors, feed producers and suppliers have scope to play a starring role in the market for upcycled food and ingredients.  

Repurposing side streams into food instead of other things like biofuels is the obvious choice from a sustainability point of view. 

But for suppliers of side streams, it’s not so obvious. Many times, the price paid for side streams other markets is too attractive or the implementation of upcycled practices too complex or expensive according to their standpoint. 

Discover your role, and benefit

Besides the fact that you as a stakeholder can harness existing links with food manufacturers to find new directions for side streams in the food space, you can also play a potential role as innovator by finding new ways to make side-streams safe, stable and applicable for further processing. To shift into selling and potentially processing raw materials for food-oriented customers have to jump through many regulatory hoops. Working closely with suppliers and customers can shepherd you through those hurdles.
