An Idea Whose Time Has Come


Treasure8 is a technology company focused on systemically reducing food waste and alleviating climate change using a specialized platform including the world’s most powerful, proprietary dehydration technologies. In combination with powerful partnerships, it is developing completely vertically integrated solutions to tackle five pillars of impact: dehydrated whole foods, hemp drying and waste extractions, plant-based proteins, nutraceuticals, and bioplastics. A big idea and a big challenge, but one whose time has come.

What We Create


A Resource Revolution

At Treasure8 we believe in the power of positive thinking. We believe in utilizing the resources that farmers have grown, that nature has provided, that science and technology have created, and fusing them to solve massive, global challenges. We know that food waste can be spun into a valuable resource to feed a growing planet, and we want others to adopt this view with us. This is why we come to work every day. This is our manifesto. And above all else, this is a resource revolution


The Treasure8 Re-Harvest Method

We address two global challenges; food waste and food insecurity, with one systemic solution; a pipeline to capture and convert a fraction of the 1.3 billion metric tons of global food waste from CPG companies, agriculture and grocery into cost-reduced ingredients & products to be sold by ourselves and others.  Scalability and speed are critical for us to create the systemic, global impact we desire. Therefore, we have created the below process called the Treasure8 Re-Harvest Method.

We secure and capture food waste streams (primarily post-production and infield) from CPG and agriculture companies at the source.

Then we convert consistent food waste streams into safe, traceable ingredients & products for human and/or pet food consumption, energy or soils.

Incorporating food waste streams, and other sustainably-sourced ingredients, our product development lab creates nutrient-dense products to be sold by ourselves, global CPG’s, and others.

We design for scale by inventing and implementing energy-efficient (and where possible, patentable) production methods for processing large volumes of materials into products and ingredients.

We’re not in the distribution business, but we work to understand it like it's our job. By ensuring that products have long shelf lives and we are competitively priced, we take advantage of our projects and those we consult for when making national and international distribution deals.

If it doesn’t sell, it doesn’t feed. We work with best-in-class branding and marketing experts to create clear, and culturally relevant narratives that lead to consumption that benefits people, planet, and pocketbooks.  


“We’ve created an upcycling technology and partnership platform to provide an aggressive and systemic solution to food waste and climate change. For us, now is the time to not only make a positive impact on the environment, but also create better whole food nutrition options for folks everywhere. 

It’s a Resource Revolution and we’re thrilled to help lead the charge.” Timothy Childs, Founder / Co-CEO
