A Novel Way To Prevent Food Waste And Up-cycle Fruit

Steven Savage writes in Forbes about one food company that is reducing waste.

The C3 Take
  • RIND is a company that is reducing food waste by turning unsold produce into snacks.
  • RIND takes fruits that are rejected by grocery stores for cosmetic reasons and dehydrates the rinds to create a healthy and tasty treat.
  • In 2021 RIND prevented 300,000 pounds of edible peels from entering landfills.

“RIND contracts with fruit packing companies and processors to turn the fruit into thinly sliced, dried, ready to eat snacks with a long shelf life. Their product line includes various mixes of oranges, mandarins, apples, pears, kiwis, strawberries, bananas, coconut, watermelon, honeydew melon, peaches, persimmons and pineapple.”
