The Spent Goods Company is upcycling viable food by-products into value.

We're currently working with the craft brewing industry to take the barley grains used to make beer and making artisan bread and delicious snacks.

We have 10 products Our Beer Bread organic sourdough was voted one of top 5 breads in Toronto by NOW Magazine readers and recently featured on CBC, BlogTO and LCBO.

Our key differentiation is that we're using locally available resources to feed people locally — as a result, we can help to reduce climate change on a daily basis as the grains don't end up in the landfill releasing greenhouse gases.

  • Barley grains have x2 fiber and protein compared to white flour

We're looking for an individual with experience selling (ideally at Farmer's market) able to setup and operate the stand independently.

We'll get the product to you - you'd be responsible for sales, amazing customer service and educating consumers about participating in a circular economy.

Ideal candidate would have a valid Food Handler's certificate and ability to get to the market.

  • Every Saturday 630AM-1PM @ Evergreen Brickworks starting May 1 till end of Dec
