Food Circular economy Research

Background

This project conducted research into the opportunities to turn stone fruit waste (e.g. peaches, avocados, plums, prunes) into valuable products.

It delivered a detailed literature review on the composition and potential for extraction of valuable products and other processing to provide valuable products from stone fruits from farm production streams.

This included a search of patent literature and identification of current commercial ventures for creating products from stone fruit production by-products.

Objective

Identifying opportunities for new circular products.
