More about Spent Goods:
Henderson Brewing Co provides their spent grains to Drake Commissary, an artisan bakery, who makes delicious food that is then sold by The Spent Goods Company via grocery stores, farmer’s markets, schools and restaurants. Their initiatives have been acknowledged most recently by CBC, BlogTO as “Toronto’s latest bread craze,” and NOW Magazine.

The Spent Goods Company is a Food transformer – they find complementary businesses to partner with, make new products with their by-products and get them in front of customers.
