Del Monte Foods, INC. is leading the upcycled food movement as the company’s first canned vegetable item is getting certified by Upcycled Food Association. Del Monte® and Blue Lake® Cut Green Beans are 100 percent sustainable and upcycled, sourced from Illinois and Wisconsin. USDA claims that rotten food in landfills is resulting in the emission of greenhouse gas. Del Monte has converted approximately 600,000 pounds of surplus green beans from last year into upcycled certified green bean canned products to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Besides this, Del Monte has partnered with Feeding America to deliver upcycled beans, peaches, and pears to needy communities.
