Caroline Cotto, Renewal Mill
Renewal Mill is on a mission to help you fight climate change from your kitchen! They're a next-generation upcycled food company that makes sustainability a cinch by finding value in the overlooked and transforming it into delicious food. Built out of their first-hand experience with food waste in the juicing business, they are building an entire portfolio of upcycled ingredients, sourced from places in the food system where nutrition is being lost (a.k.a. the byproducts of food manufacturing). Starting with the byproducts of plant-based milk, they've crafted a line of premium, high fiber, low-carb, gluten-free flours. You can use these upcycled flours in your own recipes, or enjoy one of their easy-to-use baking mixes or ready-to-eat cookies featuring their upcycled ingredients. All of their products are also 100% plant-based and gluten-free. Renewal Mill is a woman-owned company based in Oakland, CA, led by Claire Schlemme and Caroline Cotto. All of their product development is done by 5x James Beard award-winning cookbook author, Alice Medrich. Renewal Mill: It’s baking but better for you and for the planet.
