An upcycled raw material for our planet.

From previously unused fruit pits, Kern Tec develops innovative, sustainable ingredients and ready-to-use solutions for the food industry - from milk alternatives to nut spreads. 

Innovation is our Core Business

Each year, over 500,000 tons of fruit pits remain unused in the fruit industry. Kern Tec rescues them & enables them for a new, sustainable purpose:

By processing kernels (apricot, cherry & plum), we are providing true circular economy & enabling our B2B partners to access a previously untapped resource for the first time. Whether as an ingredient or a ready-to-use solution - our fruit kernels are as versatile as nuts. But more sustainable. 

With plant-based milk alternatives, nut-free spreads or genuine gourmet oils, we provide food that will delight our planet & your consumers.  

For a world in which raw materials are no longer forgotten.
