What's Next? A True Perennial Pantry
After developing and launching our Kernza® Crackers this spring, we've been working to expand our production capacity and our product offerings.
We need more tools during cracker production to make it sustainable. For our initial batches, we needed to use a different commercial kitchen, and our lamination process is time intensive. We've purchased a new dough production conveyor table to make things easier, as well as our own ovens and mixer. We aren't ready for constant cracker availability yet, but are working on it! Here's a video of our new table:
We've also been acquiring other new tools in order to offer a true Perennial Pantry! We have a pasta extruder, and are working on our first Kernza® pasta. We have a grain puffer, and are figuring out puffing in order to make a granola. We've been pressing Winter Camelina oil, cleaning Sainfoin, a perennial bean, experimenting with Perennial Wheat, and working on Kernza tortillas.
Why so many new products? We're working towards launching The Perennial Share, a pantry subscription (or CSA), offering a monthly box of pantry staples, made with regenerative ingredients like Kernza® Perennial Grain.
