Being part of TARMAC TX underscores the positive impact potential of GrubTubs 

GrubTubs is very excited to join the Tarmac TX cohort for 2017. As part of the 2017 cohort GrubTubs looks forward to broadcasting its unique business model amongst industry and investment titans for recycling food to offset animal feed costs for American farmers.

Generate positive impact with Tarmac TX

Tarmac TX, in partnership with 3M and CALSO, is a one-of-a-kind accelerator for technology startups developing a product or service addressing some of the most pressing social and environmental challenges of our times. Based in Austin, TX, their 9-month program offers selected startups free support services, including a co-working space, events & workshops, mentorship and networking opportunities in both the Tech and the Social ecosystems.

GrubTubs partnering with 3M has broad applications for redifining food safety for both city waste streams and farms.

As GrubTubs aims to support family farms by making feed affordable, there is a real opportunity to change how cities deal with food and food waste. Especially if you recognize that 3M is a partner with Tarmac TX and 3M has a tremendous expertice in wireless tracking, microbial detection, food safety and sensor technology. All of those components are crucial to make the next generation of GrubTubs that deliver safe food/feed to urban farms.

For GrubTubs, its essential that food can be collected safely and frequently in cities to become the feedstock for bioconversion into animal feed at nearby farms. RFID technology can trace our GrubTubs throughout the supply chain to not only meet food safety tracking requirements, but to further integrate what's one mans trash and make it logistically available and manageable as another man's gold. The expertise available at 3M has tremendous value for a young startup like GrubTubs.
