The Real Dill turns food waste into compost and a Bloody Mary mix

  • 27 july 2017

Pickle company The Real Dill used to throw out about 300 pounds of food scraps—including cucumbers, raw horseradish, dill and peppers—every week. Last year, they partnered with non-profit Re:Vision to turn all of those scraps into compost. With this partnership and some creativity, The Real Dill has successfully achieved zero food waste. The company even repurposes the water used to brine cucumbers to make its Bloody Mary mix.

The best-selling Bloody Mary Mix was created to increase The Real Dill’s sustainable efforts by diverting more vegetable waste from the landfill. As an additional step in its commitment to environmental conservation, the company donates produce crates to be reused by local non-profits and farmers.
