Food Cycle Science Inks Distribution Deal with Costco.com and Costco.ca

Food Cycle Science announced its distribution deal with both Costco.com and Costco.ca for its residential unit, the Food Cycler: Home. The Food Cycler: Home is the company's first composter designed specifically for consumer use and tackles the challenges most consumers associate with traditional composting. Through the use of aerobic technology, the device is able to modernize and expedite the traditional composting process without the use of chemicals in as little as 3 hours. The resulting by-product created by the composter has been lab-tested and deemed ideal for both gardening and landscaping. The Food Cycler: Home provides an easy, odorless, and quiet way to almost entirely eliminate residential food waste, as the device helps reduce in-home waste by 90%. The agreement with Costco makes it the first retailer to offer the Food Cycler: Home for purchase outside of the Food Cycle Science online marketplace. Units will retail for around $399 and can be purchased at both Costco.com and Costco.ca.
