FoodCycler has partnered with Vitamix Corporation, known by most consumers for their top quality and highly reliable blenders. Vitamix blenders offer incredible versatility to the healthy-living, fun-loving foodie - some Vitamix-ers even use it to facilitate their backyard composting. Vitamix also stands behind their products, offering up to a 10-Year Warranty with full coverage. Longer-lasting products mean fewer replacements, and less e-waste being sent to landfills.
Food waste is a massive problem worldwide, and Vitamix users are not immune to both the cause and effects of this epidemic of waste. While there are many tools out there to divert food waste, unfortunately most still ends up in the garbage.
Scott Hackman, Vice President of Strategy at Vitamix stated: “[We] conducted an independent survey and found that nearly 30 percent of people don’t compost because they don’t have enough space, 15 percent think it’s too messy or smelly, and nearly 10 percent think it takes too long.”
“Methane generated from food waste in landfills is up to 40 times more harmful to the environment than the CO2 from our cars. That means the food scraps we throw away every single day are a massive contributor to global warming,” says Bradley Crepeau, CEO at FoodCycler.
Wanting to help close the loop on food waste produced in the modern kitchen, Vitamix sought a solution as sophisticated and user-friendly as their own product line.
The FoodCycler FC-50 eliminates all the space, time, climate, and mobility restrictions of traditional composting. By aerating, dehydrating and pulverizing food waste within a matter of hours, this in-home composting alternative transforms food scraps from your kitchen into fertilizer for your garden.
No methane, no smells, no endless turning – and you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your kitchen. Just add your scraps and press Start!
NEW FOODCYCLER Vitamix is now managing all consumer sales in North America and is launching the Vitamix FoodCycler FC-50 specifically for this market.
