Leaders in sustainable value creation

Australasia’s first and only dedicated, commercial scale converter of consumer food by-products.

Re-purposing valuable food products

Castlegate James has championed sustainability from before there were terms to describe its vision and capabilities. It can proudly boast that it is Australasia’s first and only dedicated, commercial scale converter of consumer food by-products.

We’re dedicated to getting more out of the food value chain, repurposing over 700,000 tonnes per year of food material that would have been wasted, being sent at a cost to land fill. At Castlegate James, we are always seeking innovative solutions to repurpose valuable food products to reduce the impact on the environment.

Corporate social responsibility

Companies of all sizes are increasingly held responsible for their social and environmental impact by their stakeholders and the public. Here at Castlegate James, we assist our suppliers to satisfy their sustainability CSR credentials by helping them reduce their impact on the environment.

Co-product processing and de-packaging

In addition to collecting, managing and processing raw material co-products, we specialise in de-packaging retail ready foodstuffs through our unique automated production facilities.

Across New Zealand and Australia, through these unique capabilities we produce co-product feed solutions for animal producers. But these are not fixed solutions. To meet the dynamic and evolving needs of our customers, we are constantly innovating the way we process and utilise co-products.

Our vision for a sustainable future

Castlegate James is always exploring new and innovative ways to sustainably extract value from co-products.

We investigate and invest in the discovery and creation of co-product market opportunities.
