BEDMINSTER, N.J. – Do Good Foods™, the country’s preeminent climate-forward food company, announced that its flagship product, Do Good Chicken®, has won the prestigious Top Product of the Year Award in the 2023 Environment + Energy Leader Awards program. This accolade recognizes Do Good Foods as an exemplary leader in the sustainable food space and its positive impact in energy or environmental management.
What makes Do Good Chicken award winning? First, Do Good Foods takes healthy surplus food from grocery stores and upcycles it into nutrient-dense chicken feed. Their upcycled animal feed provides chickens with a more natural diet. Do Good Chickens are then fed this feed and sold at grocery stores, restaurants, or cafeterias. Every purchase of Do Good Chicken truly empowers consumers to now be a part of a climate change solution, while simply enjoying a delicious chicken on their plate.
This unique “closed loop” process significantly reduces the food waste and greenhouse gas emissions typically associated with poultry production. Do Good Chicken is a simple, tasty, good for plate and planet option that helps fight food waste and combats climate change.
It was Do Good’s game-changing approach that captivated the attention of the award program’s distinguished panel of judges. One judge remarked, “Do Good Foods is producing a better tasting chicken while at the same time promoting a model for food sustainability. That’s a win-win for all of us.”
Each Do Good Chicken saves surplus grocery food from being thrown away, thereby preventing the release of 3lbs of greenhouse gases ( CO2e ) from entering the atmosphere.
“I’m exceptionally proud of the Do Good Foods team, and this important award affirms that our efforts are both having an impact and getting noticed by the industry,” said Justin Kamine, the co-CEO of Do Good Foods. “We’re making a difference. Since its launch, Do Good Foods has diverted more than 32 million pounds of surplus grocery food from the landfill to date, saving more than 4,300 metric tons of greenhouse gases ( CO2e ) from entering the atmosphere.”
The Environment + Energy Leader Awards program aims to commend excellence in products and projects that deliver significant energy and environmental benefits.
Sarah Roberts, Co-President of E+E Leader, emphasized the rigorous selection process, stating, “This year’s entrants had to surpass an exceptionally high bar to qualify for an award, thanks to a seasoned and discerning judging panel as well as stringent judging criteria.”
