Processors are selecting more ingredients that
appeal to a pet parent's sustainability side.

Pet food and treat processors have been using upcycled
ingredients - namely in the form of rendered meat byproducts
- before it was even a coined term. Upcycling
is all about preventing healthful, nutritious foods and
ingredients from becoming waste by giving them a second
chance to be consumed. While rendering meat byproducts
into high-protein ingredients rather than disposing
of them in landfills is commendable, it's all the
other ingredients now being upcycled that are catching
the attention of sustainability-conscious pet parents.
Upcycling gains traction fast
The Upcycled Food Association (UFA), Denver, was
formed in 2019 and officially defined the term " upcycled
food " in 2020 for use in policy, research and practice.
The team of consulting experts agreed that " upcycled
foods use ingredients that otherwise would not have
gone to human consumption, are procured and produced
using verifiable supply chains, and have a positive
impact on the environment. "
Since, the UFA has certified 236 upcycled ingredients,
many of which have applications in pet foods and treats.
Four pet food companies - Chippin, Arlington, Va.;
Leashless Lab, Milwaukee, Wis.; Phelps Pet Products,
Rockford, Ill.; and Shameless Pets, Chicago - currently
sport the Upcycled Certified logo.
" Upcycled Certified has been even more successful
than we imagined, " said Turner Wyatt, co-founder, former
chief executive officer and current strategic advisor
to the association. " Every year, almost 1 billion lbs
of food waste is prevented by upcycled products around
the world. This number will continue to grow as consumer
demand for upcycled products increases.
" Lots of Upcycled Certified ingredients can be easily
integrated into any recipe, giving a new product a competitive
sustainability edge, " Wyatt said.
Tony Moses, director, product innovation, CRB
Kansas City, Mo., said, " Upcycled ingredients typically
have the same nutritional properties as other ingredients
but have a different appearance. It's critical that the processing
and control systems account for these variations.
For example, upcycled produce, such as carrots, may
have a wider color range. The control and quality systems
in the facility need to be able to detect and accept
that wider range. "
Phelps Pet Products, a private-label manufacturer that
produces the Table Scraps brand, was the first dog treat
manufacturer to become a member of the UFA and the
