California Safe Soil Healthy Soil. Healthy Plants.
On March 18th, California Safe Soil made a joint announcement with Save Mart. Save Mart and CSS have an Agreement in Principle for Save Mart to supply organic waste to CSS from all 225 of their stores under a long term contract we expect to negotiate in coming months. Save Mart Supermarkets have an existing organics separation program, and seek to improve store hygiene, improve the sustainability of their organics program, and reduce costs.
In addition to this, CSS has agreements in place with several other California grocery chains including Safeway, Inc., Nugget Markets, Inc., Whole Foods and Grocery Outlet. These are supermarkets located in the Sacramento area which supply food residuals to the CSS Pilot Plant in West Sacramento, CA. Safeway has an existing organics separation program, is seeking to improve store hygiene, and reduce costs. “Several Nugget Market stores and Grocery Outlet in Davis have implemented an organics separation program with CSS”Several Nugget Market stores and Grocery Outlet in Davis have implemented an organics separation program with CSS, with the aim to increase their recycling rate, improve store hygiene, and reduce costs. Whole Foods has always been a leader in sustainable practices, including organics recycling. Their Davis, CA store is working with the CSS team to utilize the CSS collection system for its separated organics. As a result of CSS's operating efficiencies and quality finished product, CSS can offer supermarkets a better environmental solution for separating and recycling organics at a highly competitive price.

The results of the research performed at UC Davis demonstrate the safety and efficacy of Harvest-to-Harvest™ (H2H™). The pdf download below from the Journal of Cleaner Production, a reputable scientific journal, proves that each step of our H2H™ process eliminates pathogens which makes the end product 100% food safe.

As H2H™ gains acceptance in the agricultural community, CSS expects to add supermarket customers to expand and diversify its supply of food residuals.
CSS has secured specialty containers, manufactured by Promens Inc. for use at Save Mart, Safeway, Nugget Markets, Whole Foods and Grocery Outlet.
