Toronto, ON and Ottawa, ON, June 11, 2024 – Power Sustainable Lios Inc. (“PSL”), the sustainable agrifood investment group of Power Sustainable (“PS”), announced today it has invested in Food Cycle Science Corporation (“Food Cycle Science”, or “FCS”), providing FCS with strong institutional backing in direct support of their continued growth in Canada and internationally. FCS’s FoodCycler® is an award-winning electric food waste recycler that transforms food scraps into a dry, odour-free by-product, avoiding methane emissions that result from food waste breaking down in landfills.

FCS designs and delivers waste solutions that enable individuals, businesses, and communities to manage their food waste conveniently and sustainably. To date, FCS has delivered over 250,000 units that are in use in over 20 countries. These solutions are both cost-effective and user-friendly, using energy-efficient technology to process food waste in homes in a manner that eliminates odours and reduces volume by up to 90%. This essential infrastructure can decrease food waste emissions by more than 75% while complementing existing systems like municipal composting and anaerobic digestion programs.

Founded in 2011, FCS sells its innovative devices to consumers in North America, Asia, and beyond. FCS launched its first household unit in North America in 2017 and now works closely with global distributors, US waste haulers, and food service operators. FCS also partners with municipalities to offer its cutting-edge solutions, winning multiple awards and recognitions for its breakthrough technology and achieving high consumer ratings. Aiming to eliminate the world's food waste, FCS continues to lead in sustainable waste management.

"We are thrilled to partner with Food Cycle Science to support their continued growth as the leader in this emerging sector," said Jonathan Belair, Managing Partner of Power Sustainable Lios. "Food Cycle Science's proprietary technology not only drastically improves the experience of managing food waste at home and within businesses, but also addresses over-capacity at landfills. Their innovative solutions represent an important tool in addressing the environmental impact of the food waste crisis, setting new standards in the industry. We are excited to help them expand their market presence."

“This is a transformative partnership for our business,” said Bradley Crepeau, Chief Executive Officer of Food Cycle Science. “Over the past number of years, we’ve developed innovative, patented technology and demonstrated its value in the market. By partnering with Power Sustainable Lios, we can access the capabilities, networks, and capital we need to embark on our next phase of growth, entering new channels and geographies with groundbreaking new products.”

PSL’s extensive experience investing, operating, and advising across the food value chain makes us the ideal partner for FCS,” said Craig Hanna, Partner of Power Sustainable Lios. “We have followed FCS for several years, and our research shows that their technology and business model position it as a clear leader in this growing market.
