Treasure8 is providing Shameless Pets with upcycled, dehydrated juice pressings for its popular pet treats brand
Treasure8, a company systemically fighting food waste and climate change, announced today that it has officially partnered with Shameless Pets to help it further its mission to reduce the environmental impact of pet food by creating the most nutritious, upcycled pet treats available on the market today.
Patented USDA-based SAUNA technology can dehydrate food waste streams faster & with better results than most drying technology on the market today
Treasure8 is the latest company from Founder & co-CEO Timothy Childs, previously the founder of popular chocolate brand, TCHO Chocolate. Treasure8 has gained traction for its superior SAUNA dehydration platform, capable of upcycling numerous materials, a win for both the environment and investors. And as food waste and climate change have become growing concerns in recent years, the need for its superior dehydration technologies has grown tenfold, most recently to the pet food space, as illustrated by this partnership. SAUNA also possesses a unique power in creating a LOG5+ mycobacterial kill step, which can be applied to upcycling food waste streams to help with food safety.
Shameless Pets also recently launched nationally in Target stores to help bring its healthy and sustainable products to more consumers across the country
Treasure8 has been collaborating with Shameless Pets to deliver the best upcycled ingredients for their innovative new products. Most recently, it has helped support them as they have embarked on their biggest venture yet, a massive and exciting launch with Target, the third-largest discount retailer in the world. And every ounce of viable food that is saved matters with $2.5T lbs of food being thrown away every year globally.
“Every partnership we make is so essential to our mission as a company, and we are grateful for this most recent one with Shameless Pets. It is the perfect example of the impact working together can have,” said Timothy Childs, Founder, and co-CEO of Treasure8 & HEMP8. “From food for people, to pets, and beyond, we’re proud to be finding regenerative ways with technology, to bring new life to what was once considered waste streams headed to landfills.”
Added Treasure8 co-CEO Derk Hendriksen, “The folks at Shameless Pets are innovative and creative people, a perfect example of when passion meets purpose and we’re proud to call them partners in this Resource Revolution.”
James Bello, CEO and co-Founder of Shameless Pets, chimed in, “As the industry works together to find sustainable solutions to deal with post-production output, we are excited to have Treasure8 join us as our technology and ingredient partner, as we work to help develop more sustainable products in this space. This is just the beginning.”
