Reducing food waste with Certified upcycled food

Upcycled Certified is a certification program for upcycled food ingredients and products by the Upcycled Food Association (UFA). The certification helps retailers showcase products and indicates to customers which products were produced with surplus food or food by-products throughout the supply chain. Products must go through a rigorous certification process that determines if they meet the standards set out to prevent food waste. The upcycled foods are made from ingredients that would usually end up in the landfill, are value-added products, and are made into high-quality products for human consumption. Learn more about the UFA and their system to track the impact of a given upcycled product.
