Market Development Committee

Think of all the new value we’re creating by diverting food scraps from landfill and making a rich soil amendment! As more and more restaurants and households divert food scraps for composting, we’ll need more buyers and sellers of compost who take full advantage of this valuable product.

The Market Development committee is focused on discovering and publicizing key applications for food scrap amended compost, from landscape design to large-scale agriculture. We are also raising awareness among potential buyers of compost and organizing opportunities for companies and individuals to purchase food scrap amended compost made right here in Illinois. We are working with farmers markets, environmental education groups, and plant sales to have food scrap amended compost for sale!
