What kind of pre-consumer food waste do grubs feed on?

Pre-consumer food waste has yet to reach consumers due to overproduction, spoilage, expiration, and trim waste. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), 40% of food is wasted in the United States during food production. This food waste is the most significant component of municipal solid waste reaching landfills.

Our grubs help reduce this waste. Pre-consumer food waste used to feed Scratch & Peck’s Grubs may include:

  • Fruit and vegetable trimmings
  • Spent distiller and brewer grains
  • Bakery excess
  • Other excess organic food products

Grubs are a win for the environment and our chickens!
