Many years ago on a business trip to California, I drove the length of the Central Valley. It was an impressive experience because the vast Central Valley produces so much of our country’s agricultural output. On this trip I rode through the Imperial Valley, east and south of Brawley and west of El Centro. The farmers of the imperial valley make the desert bloom with all kinds of crops: carrots, onions, sugar beets, hay. It was a great experience for a food guy.
The technology we employ at EDGE to convert agricultural waste material into gelling activated fibers can be applied to several other agricultural waste streams. I can see more road trips in my future to talk with other food crop processors about applying our technology to their waste streams to develop new unique gelling fibers for food formulators.
Enough about that, now on to the beach at San Diego.
