At Crodarom, upcycling is integrated in our sustainable strategy. We recently launched thr Phytolea™ Range, a range of natural derived oil obtained by pressing the seed or kernel waste, collected after juicing and jams production. Fruit by-products used for this range are from apple, baobab, cherry, cranberry, lemon, lime, passionfruit, pomegranate and prickly pear.
There is a growing movement to save less than perfect resources which are currently removed from stores because they do not meet industry standards. At Crodarom, we collect unused pearls turned down by jewellery makers, and truffles not suitable for use in other applications.
Agricultural crop practices generate unused renewable biomass with great potential. Banana and peach are two of the world’s most important fruit crops that are widely cultivated for food industries. However, there are large amounts of underused by-products and as banana and peach flowers are removed from trees to enhance fruit growth, they become a strong interest for the cosmetic market. Crodarom collect these flowers to provide additional income to small-scale farming industries and to reduce environmental impacts.
