SO WHAT'S UPCYCLING!?

At Shameless we create a delicious product out ingredients that would have otherwise been wasted—that's called Upcycling! Imagine a farmer’s leftover pumpkins after Halloween, apple pulp from a cider press, or lobster shells from a cannery. In the case of our treats, this unused food becomes an ingredient that is highly nutritious and ridiculously tasty.

Food Waste Affects EVERYONE

Did you know? 63 MILLION tons of food are throw away each year. That's enough food to feed half the U.S.A! 

Food is wasted every step along the way from the field to consumption:
      • Agricultural production
      • Post harvest
      • Processing
      • Distribution
      • Consumption

    Shameless Pets focuses on rescuing ingredients from agricultural production, post harvest leftovers, and food processing

    Fruits, vegetables, and dairy are the greatest contributors to food waste and where we focus our efforts.

    In addition to wasting nutritious calories, food waste contributes to throwing away precious resources such as water, land, energy, and labor.  It also needlessly contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and global warming.

      Reducing food waste can be a huge benefit to our ecosystem!
