We can help you take the next step!

New Hampshire has started a Food Waste and Composting Stakeholder Group to look at increasing the diversion of wasted food. CET participates in this group and recently spoke about commercial food waste systems at a New Hampshire conference run by the Northeast Resource Recovery Association. CET sees opportunities for jumpstarting the marketplace in New Hampshire and adding to the efforts already underway.

Helpful New Hampshire Wasted Food Resources

    • Nestled on the serene shores of Squam Lake in Holderness, New Hampshire, Rockywold Deephaven Camps have been offering guests a haven of nature and relaxation for over 125 years. The picturesque landscape and array of recreational activities draw visitors seeking solace in the great outdoors. However, serving over 500 people three times a day, seven days a week also generates a significant amount of food waste, leading the camp to ponder its environmental impact. Seeking a sustainable solution, Head Chef Brandi Edinger reached out to Wasted Food Solutions for assistance in diverting food scraps.
    • New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services provides best management practices composting food waste at solid waste facilities in the state.
  • Wasted Food Solutions for Northern New Hampshire
    • In 2021 and 2022, CET engaged stakeholders in the food business sector in the towns of Bethlehem, Littleton, and Lancaster in New Hampshire. With support from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), CET connected with nine businesses, solution providers, and regional representatives to build relationships and to better understand the key drivers that are working well and those that would benefit from future marketplace development in Northern New Hampshire.
