The Planting Hope Company’s flagship brand Hope and Sesame sesame milk is the world’s first plant milk to earn Upcycled Food Association certification.

The Upcycled Certified Program is the world’s first third-party certification program for upcycled food ingredients and products. To qualify for upcycled certification, products must be produced with surplus food or food by-products and contain at least 10 per cent upcycled ingredients with verifiable supply chains and positive impact on the environment.

“We’re thrilled that Hope and Sesame sesame milk, the first commercialized sesame milk globally, is also the first plant milk to earn the Upcycled Certified mark from the Upcycled Food Association,” said Julia Stamberger, Planting Hope CEO and co-founder. “Our mission is to disrupt the plant milk space worldwide with a delicious and highly nutritious non-dairy milk option that’s also highly sustainable and planet-friendly. As sustainability increases as a priority for consumers and as a boardroom-level topic for retailers, we foresee accelerated opportunities and demand for planet-friendly food and beverage products like Hope and Sesame sesame milk.”
