K Group is committed to halving its food waste – and bringing to stores the first convenience food made from ingredients that would otherwise be lost or wasted

K Group’s goal is to halve its food waste by 2030. Achieving this ambitious goal requires continuous development, which includes ideas stemming from the circular economy concept, such as products made from otherwise wasted food. The Hyvis product line, which currently makes use of otherwise wasted food, is complemented with a new convenience food: the Hyvis tomato and cheese soup, which is made with tomatoes discarded at K Group’s central warehouse and Juustoportti’s surplus cheese.
