Renewal Mill is a next generation ingredient company that upcycles fiber and protein produced during large-scale food manufacturing into high-quality ingredients and products. In doing so, Renewal Mill, the recent winner of IFT's Food Disruption Challenge, is reducing waste and improving nutrition. Partnering with its first pilot facility, Hodo Foods, in Oakland, CA, Renewal Mill uses its proprietary technology to upcycle the byproduct of soymilk manufacturing, called okara, into a high protein, high fiber, gluten free flour. The company uses that flour to create baked good products that are currently sold at convenience stores in the Bay Area and can be found at tech companies such as Google, Lyft, and Slack. Renewal Mill will soon be in nationwide distribution and has already started work on additional byproduct sources from other nuts and legumes. The company is 100% female run and believes that a core part of its mission is to bring its high quality nutrition and chef-developed products to food deserts first.
