They are focused on upcycling organic byproducts into valuable ingredients. Their first product is tackling spent grain – the byproduct produced by the beer brewing process. Spent grain is often disposed of through landfill – Rise have patented technology to convert that waste into a flour – high in protein, fiber and low in carbs. Rise collects unspent barley from breweries and turn it into a tasty and nutritious flour using their proprietary technology. A chef? Reach out. A food manufacturer? Reach out.
