EverGrain, a barley ingredients company backed by brewing giant Anheuser-Busch that makes proteins and fibers from AB InBev’s spent grains; and Bright Future Foods, a subsidiary of Post Holdings utilizing oats grown on zero CO2 emission farms; are teaming up to create ‘climate friendly’ snacks.

Bright Future Foods – which has just launched Airly Oat Cloud Crackers​, billed as the ‘first ever climate-positive snack​’ will work with EverGrain​ “to create innovative food products to help tackle the world’s most pressing sustainability challenges,​” said Bright Future Foods CEO, Mark Izzo.

EverGrain’s innovative processes make its barley-based ingredients one of the most sustainable plant protein and fiber sources in the world, while Bright Future Foods is pioneering climate friendly snacking that starts with greenhouse gas removing grains and targeted sustainable agriculture practices.”

Airly crackers - which have just launched direct to consumer at airlyfoods.com​ - will be available in retail shortly, according to the Airly website, which says the brand uses a "third party to conduct a full life cycle analysis of all activities to produce Airly from growing all of our ingredients, to baking, to packaging and transportation to our customers."

It adds: "We invest in carbon credits to offset our production, transportation, packaging, and other raw ingredients to get us back to the on-farm level of removing greenhouse gas from the air. The carbon credits we purchase come from forestry or farm carbon sequestration projects​."

More details will be shared shortly.
