Bedminster, New Jersey-based Do Good Foods has launched Do Good Chicken in grocers throughout Philadelphia.
The company is on a mission to change the world with products that enable people to “do good” with everyday purchases. Each year, about 40 percent of healthy grocery food gets tossed into landfills. According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, if food waste were its own country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world.
To help keep this healthy food from going to waste, Do Good Foods has partnered with grocers for a smart, impactful solution to protect our planet.
How can chicken save the world?
After community donations, Do Good Foods takes healthy surplus food from grocery stores and upcycles it into nutrient-dense chicken feed that mimics a chicken’s natural diet. The high quality, carbon-reduced chicken is then made available for purchase at those same markets, closing the loop and helping combat food waste. Each product saves four pounds of surplus groceries from being thrown away, thus preventing three pounds of greenhouse gases.
“Food waste is a massive problem with approximately 40 percent of the food we grow in the U.S. going to waste. We believe this can be solved with what we are doing at Do Good Foods by upcycling surplus grocery food, creating a closed loop system and providing accessible great tasting chicken to consumers. We are bringing real sustainability to scale and empowering everyone to be a part of the solution,” said Justin Kamine, co-CEO and co-founder.
“We’re thrilled to make our first retail market Philadelphia – also home to our very first production facility – giving everyone an easy way to Do Good and start making an immediate impact on our planet right from their own kitchen.”
Do Good Foods has teamed up with Philadelphia native, chef and founder of Carroll Couture Cuisine and Spice Finch, Jennifer Carroll, to provide home cooks with a climate-friendly recipe using Do Good Chicken, spices, herbs and fresh vegetables.
“Good food should be eaten, not wasted,” Carroll said. “As a chef, restaurateur and someone who just wants to do better for the environment, it is so exciting to partner with a brand that is on a mission to help everyone – from home cooks to professional chefs – create smarter meals that make a real impact.”
Do Good Chicken brings 100 percent natural, high-quality taste with no antibiotics, hormones or steroids. The cage-free chickens are raised and harvested in the U.S. and available in a variety of cuts that can be grilled, baked, pan-fried and enjoyed.
The products can be found in the poultry section at select Albertsons banners and Giant stores across the Philadelphia area.
