Hello BESTers,

This week I have an article about food waste recycling that's happening 
right here in Florida.  In Bartow, Organic Matters Inc. has been 
recycling food waste into animal feed for nearly 13 years.  They are 
currently recycling 1,000 tons of food waste per week, which primarily 
consists of bakery waste from Publix and Butterkrust Bakery.  This not 
only benefits these companies by recycling their waste, but also 
benefits local farmers by providing a high-quality, inexpensive feed 
source.  More enterprises like this are needed in order to connect the 
dots for a sustainable food systems.

Have a great weekend,
Ryan
