Creating value from food waste

A Genius take on pet food

A Climate Leaders’ Programme project

This project, initiated by Dr Paula Short (Founder and Veterinarian, Genius Pet Food) seeks to identify food waste from local food and beverage producers and repurpose this into value-added products, such as pet food.

New Zealand food producers send over 100,000 tonnes of food waste to landfill every year. By connecting food producers with businesses who can use their valuable waste ingredients the project aims to significantly reduce the amount of food waste being sent to landfill in Te Tauihu.

If you know of any suitable local food waste or are interested in repurposing food waste for your business please contact Paula.
