Supermarket surplus foods were the main ingredients used by Sofía Vallejo Dorantes, a student of Industrial Engineering of the Ibero American University, to create vegan croquettes for dogs.

With the project named “Cuddle,” Sofía Vallejo won second place in the entrepreneurship simulator TrempCamp, which took place at the University of San Diego.

The project, with the slogan “Cuddle your dog, cuddle the environment,” shows a positive environmental impact since it reuses fruits and vegetables in good conditions, according to a release of the Ibero American University.

Vallejo and her team have the right to compete for a pass to 4 Years From Now, a world congress in which investors can finance this kind of projects.
