Treasure8, a company that works to fight against food waste and climate change, was founded by co-CEO Timothy Childs, who previously launched the popular chocolate brand, TCHO Chocolate. The company gained traction for its superior SAUNA™ dehydration platform, capable of upcycling numerous materials, which also possesses a unique power in creating a LOG5+ mycobacterial kill step to help with food safety.
The company is providing upcycled, dehydrated juice pressings for Chicago-based Shameless Pets, and recently also supported them in their recent move to launch into Target, the third-largest discount retailer in the world. Treasure8 says that every ounce of viable food that is saved from being wasted is important, with $2.5T lbs of food thrown away every year globally.
“Every partnership we make is so essential to our mission as a company, and we are grateful for this most recent one with Shameless Pets. It is the perfect example of the impact working together can have,” said Timothy Childs, Founder, and co-CEO of Treasure8 & HEMP8. “From food for people, to pets, and beyond, we’re proud to be finding regenerative ways with technology, to bring new life to what was once considered waste streams headed to landfills.”
James Bello, CEO and co-Founder of Shameless Pets, chimed in, “As the industry works together to find sustainable solutions to deal with post-production output, we are excited to have Treasure8 join us as our technology and ingredient partner, as we work to help develop more sustainable products in this space. This is just the beginning.”
