Our relationship with Waste Management has furthered our commitment to developing and
offering byproducts with beneficial reuse purposes and renewable energy resources. Compost
happens to be a primary focus in that regard. Composting is a proven organics processing
technology and is often the most immediately available beneficial use opportunity for food
waste and other organic materials.
The benefits of compost are abundant. Compost simply reuses organic products that are no
longer needed or no longer suited for human consumption. Compost is also proven to improve
soil structure and porosity by creating a better plant root environment. It reduces moisture loss
by promoting moisture retention and aids the proliferation of soil microbes.
We’ve noticed a trend within grocery store and supermarket chains - it seems like most
companies are seeking ways to reduce food waste and their contribution to landfills. In fact, we
have partnered with Publix and Waste Management in South Florida to process pre-consumer
food waste from Publix stores, including produce, baker and floral items, in order to generate
organic compost products. That compost is then sold to benefit local communities and
Additionally, one of our sub-brands, Organic Valley, is launching a new compost product in
conjunction with Earth Day 2012. Stay tuned for details!
