BEDMINSTER, NJ. — Do Good Foods released its latest product, Do Good Chicken, to retailers in Philadelphia on May 16.
The eco-conscious company partnered with grocers to produce carbon-reduced chicken as a response to food waste.
“Food waste is a massive problem with approximately 40% of the food we grow in the US going to waste,” said Justin Kamine, co-chief executive officer and co-founder of Do Good Foods. “We believe this can be solved with what we are doing at Do Good Foods by upcycling surplus grocery food, creating a closed loop system, and providing accessible great tasting chicken to consumers. We are bringing real sustainability to scale and empowering everyone to be a part of the solution.”
Consumers can bring healthy surplus food to grocery stores, and Do Good Foods upcycles it into chicken feed. Do Good Foods’ chickens are raised cage-free with no added antibiotics, hormones or steroids.
Kamine added, “We're thrilled to make our first retail market Philadelphia — also home to our very first production facility — giving everyone an easy way to Do Good and start making an immediate impact on our planet right from their own kitchen.”
The company also teamed up with Jennifer Carroll, chef and founder of Carroll Couture Cuisine and Spice Finch, to provide a climate-friendly recipe using Do Good Chicken.
“Good food should be eaten, not wasted,” Carroll said. “As a chef, restaurateur and someone who just wants to do better for the environment, it is so exciting to partner with a brand that is on a mission to help everyone — from home cooks to professional chefs — create smarter meals that make a real impact.”
