We’re Peat!
We grow mushrooms from food waste. Why? Because we don't let waste go to waste!

We are a small but mighty startup at a very early stage. We pick up food waste in Manhattan and Brooklyn and transport it to our facility in Queens. We work our magic to grow mushrooms from that waste. We box the mushrooms and then transport them to restaurants throughout NYC.

We are reliable, on-time and great communicators. We lift heavy things (up to 40lbs!) and feel more than comfortable handling food scraps. We get the job done no matter what. We maintain our work equipment with care. You too? Work with us!
Current shifts are located at our Queens warehouse.
