Our team has an ongoing internal huddle throughout the year: a team meeting where we share the most disruptive and exciting startups and emerging technologies from around the world. The only rule is that they can’t solve a current client challenge directly. This way, we retain our superpower of spotting creative adjacencies and disruptive outer-horizon solutions.
In celebration of National Dairy Month, we took a look at a short list of startups reimagining dairy.
Spare Food is a culinary 👩🍳 innovation company committed to a post-food waste ♻️ world, reducing food waste at farms 🌾 and processors by capturing overlooked and 🥕 unused ingredients.
Copper Cow Coffee ☕️ creamer collection uses only organic ingredients and comes in convenient, single-use packets that are easily recyclable ♻️, ensuring a guilt-free and environmentally friendly 🌱 coffee experience.
Dairy Dirt produces a ♻️ sustainable alternative to traditional lawn 🌱 products, aids growth and soil health, made from 100% processed dairy manure from Vermont farms.
Medlee Foods creates Farmhouse 🧈 Butter, steeped in the European tradition of butter made using 🐄 whey that comes from the cheese-making 🧀 process. This whey is a byproduct of the dairy ♻️ cycle, which means it’s highly 🌾 artisanal and upcycled.
