Inspired by agriculture and the circular economy

Kern Tec is a B2B company that produces new and unique products for the food industry from unused resources of the fruit industry (apricot, cherry, plum pits).

In Europe, fruit pits are a waste product - such as in the juice industry. However, these largely undiscovered resources have great potential due to their valuable proteins and fats. At Kern Tec, they are gently washed, dried and then separated into seeds and shells to unlock their maximum potential. We then create products such as milk, spreads, oils or ice cream out of them. Continuous innovation allows us to maintain our zero-waste philosophy.
