What is a sustainable agribusiness?

Restaurants, grocery stores, fresh markets, bakeries, juicing, and fruit and vegetable processing businesses are working together with AES. By turning the co-streams generated from these fresh produce processing businesses into powder ingredients, AES helps companies become sustainable both in their working procedures and their product offerings.

AES is helping these businesses tap into new and emerging markets that are begging for clean, healthy ingredients that have a long shelf life and are easy to use.
