3F Waste Recovery is dedicated to helping farmers, food and seafood processors unlock the full potential of their harvest, delivering comprehensive solutions that encompass technology development, brand enhancement, and expanding into valuable markets for food by-products.


Newfoundland & Labrador’s fish, farm, and forest industries all generate waste, commonly known as by-products.  Unfortunately, much of this waste goes to landfills or is dumped back into the sea or forest.  Thankfully, there are more sustainable solutions.

At 3F, we repurpose these by-products by using both traditional and innovative manufacturing solutions.  We transform typical waste such as shells, fins, bones, and skins of locally sourced fish and shellfish into high-value ingredients.  These ingredients are utilized in products ranging from vitamins and supplements to cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
