Vanguard Renewables is proud to announce that 88 Acres, located in Canton, MA, is the latest New England food and beverage manufacturer to join the Farm Powered Sustainability Heroes Program (FPSH). The program brings New England-based companies together to collaborate on eliminating food waste from landfills by recycling it into renewable energy on regional dairy farms via Farm Powered® anaerobic digestion. 88 Acres joins New England Natural Bakers, Fancypants Baking Co., Sloop Brewing Co., and CFE Seafoods in a shared mission to redirect food waste, fight climate change, and help to support dairy farmers across the region.
“Food waste in the United States is one of the leading greenhouse gas emitters, and we are thrilled to work with companies like 88 Acres who understand that their waste has a higher purpose,” stated Neil H. Smith, Chief Executive Officer, Vanguard Renewables. “88 Acres knows that their unavoidable food waste from the manufacturing process doesn’t have to end up at a landfill or incinerator, but it can go on to create renewable energy – and we are excited they are joining our Farm Powered mission.”
88 Acres was launched by Nicole Ledoux and her husband Rob Dalton in 2015. After meeting on Match.com, and on their fourth date, Rob had an allergic reaction that sent him to the hospital and pushed Nicole into the kitchen to help ensure that they didn’t spend another date in the same fashion. Today, their team of nearly 100 local employees makes delicious food that everyone can enjoy, with or without a food allergy. 88 Acres began as a love story between two people and has grown to encompass a passionate community brought together by the power of great food.
