Inspired by agriculture and the circular economy

Kern Tec is a B2B ingredient company specializing in the innovative production of food industry products using underutilized resources from the fruit industry, specifically apricot, cherry, and plum pits. In Europe, fruit pits are typically considered waste, particularly within the juice industry. However, these largely untapped resources possess significant potential due to their valuable proteins and fats. At Kern Tec, we employ a washing and drying process to separate the seeds and shells, unlocking their full potential. We then create compounds (sirups) for sustainable plant based dairy alternatives, spreads and more sustainable consumer products. Continuous innovation allows us to maintain our zero-waste philosophy.
