At Future Pointe, we are enthusiastic about helping our customers and partners with value recovery from food waste. We help design the optimal solutions that align with customer needs, values, goals and budget. Oftentimes, the best fit includes a combination of technology, process engineering, and human resources.
Food waste solutions are not 'one-size-fits-all' and often require a mixture of responses. Future Pointe has extensive, hands-on experience in source reduction, donation, livestock feeding, waste-to-energy, and composting. Our ideas and our projects are cutting edge and integrated.
“Future Pointe’s George Franklin and Brendan McCrann were instrumental in bringing our community’s attention to the food waste issue. Battle Creek is in a unique position to inform national solutions as a town of 50,000 residents with BOTH representative food waste components such as schools and grocers AND unique components such as mass feeders and distributors like Kellogg and Post.
Based on our work with Future Pointe, we’ve now asked funders, including the USDA, to support the formation of a Food Waste Solutions Institute in Battle Creek. The Institute would be a test market laboratory for coordinated PREVENTION, RECOVERY, and RECYCLING strategies to help communities nationwide evaluate and plan their most economical and sustainable food waste responses.”

In conjunction with technology and program development, we've consulted with K-12 schools, colleges and universities, food banks, foundations, farms, private companies, civic organizations, commercial/retail outlets and government agencies.
