Roughly one-third of all food is currently wasted globally, and even more is lost via wasted “side streams” within food production processes.
Kern Tec is an Austria-based company creating novel products from these side streams, by converting fruit pits – especially from stone fruits such as apricot, plum and cherry – into novel food products.
Kern Tec’s products include speciality oils and plant-based milk alternatives. The upcycling food market is likely to expand in the future as regulations will offer more financial incentives for companies to cut food waste.
