A sustainable, safe way to recycle pre-consumer food waste and byproducts
Redux efficiently processes pre-consumer bakery organics, and bone and fat material into ingredients for pet food, livestock feed, and green energy, keeping them out of landfills.
How It Works
Food manufacturers, bakeries, retailers, and distributors produce goods in huge volumes. Even a small amount of rejected product can produce hundreds of tons of waste. And only about 50% of an animal gets consumed. The leftover skin, fat, bones, and other material has to be handled safely and sustainably.
1. Pick Up
We collect bone and fat byproducts from grocery stores, butchers, meat processors, and other retail food businesses. Our bakery and food producer customers either use scheduled pick-ups or call in.
Our rendering process uses high heat to kill any bacteria or viruses. The process also prevents the emission of methane, carbon dioxide, and other greenhouse gases.
Our sophisticated depackaging and sorting equipment—which has an accuracy of 95-99%—makes sure pre-consumer bakery products are safe and ready for blending. Finally it goes through a mill or screener to create the powder consistency needed for feed pellets.
The material gets turned into ingredients for pet food, livestock feed, and renewable diesel production.The finished products are shipped either same day or next day to Redux partners.

Redux will always follow the food waste hierarchy, which prioritizes food waste. We recycle the material into an ingredient for animal feed or biofuel production. At best, an organics company will just use the material for composting, which is only slightly better than landfill.
No, packaging or other garbage shouldn't be in the tubs because the materials we collect are used in pet and livestock feed. Any non-organic materials can be damaging to our processing equipment and potentially harmful to animals.

Customers are responsible for keeping the bins clean. Larger fork bins are set up with drain plugs to make them easy to wash out. But we'll replace worn out or damaged containers as needed.
