Upcycled Certification of NEM®

The mission of the Upcycled Food Association and the Upcycled Certified™ Program is to reduce food waste by growing the upcycled economy. Upcycled products use ingredients that have full nutritional value and are safe, but for various reasons, would have gone to waste. The UFA supports ambitious sustainability certification plans and partners with leading certifiers that uphold the definition and integrity of the upcycled foods sector. Upcycled Certified is currently the only third-party certification for upcycled foods globally.

Stratum Nutrition®'s NEM® eggshell membrane ingredient has become Upcycled Certified, this means that the eggshell membrane ingredient they handle has been procured and produced using verifiable supply chains and meets the standards required by the UFA and the UCP. Stratum is proud to be a part of raising awareness of the global issue of food waste and contributing to the growth of the upcycled sector of the natural products industry. Two other ingredients from Stratum, ESC® eggshell calcium and Eggshell Membrane Collagen Support Complex, have also received the Upcycled Certified designation.

It's more than just a tool; it's a bridge that connects rigorous supplier management and transparent customer communication.
