Great Lakes Cheese has joined the growing Farm Powered Strategic Alliance, which aims to boost food waste recycling and expand renewable energy production in the United States.

The partnership, which was founded by Vanguard Renewables in 2020, now has 15 members from the US food industry, including Unilever, Starbucks, and the Dairy Farmers of America. The program commits to diverting organic food waste from the manufacturing process and diverting it to Vanguard’s on-farm anaerobic digesters where it is recycled with dairy cow manure through anaerobic digestion to create renewable natural gas (RNG).
