A SOLUTION THAT MIMICS NATURE
Better Origin’s X1 insect farm converts food waste into animal feed by mimicking nature’s own solution: insect bioconversion.
Inside the unit, the waste is consumed by black soldier flies, which then provide nutrient-rich food for animals. This sustainable alternative makes for healthier, happier animals and greater yields.
We are working with farmers, retailers, and food producers to roll out this technology in the UK and beyond. Our insect farms will help secure the future of food as they reduce food waste.
WHY BETTER ORIGIN?
Food supply will need to grow 70% by 2050, yet only 5% of arable land is left. Worse, a third of all food already produced every year is wasted.
Our broken food system cannot meet the increasing demand – not unless we create a future where nature and technology work in harmony to feed the world sustainably.
Our solution restores the missing link in the food chain – insects – localising the food supply chain to safeguard food security.
LOCAL FOOD WASTE BECOMES ANIMAL FEED
The X1 recycles agricultural residues and industrial food waste to produce natural insect protein, which in turn reduces dependency on unsustainable soy feed.
CHANGING THE WORLD ONE FARM AT A TIME
Our feed improves animal health and welfare, and is cost-effective without compromising productivity.
Chicken Lives Improved
Crude protein production
Total Emissions Saved

TECHNOLOGY FOR A BETTER FUTURE
At Better Origin, we believe in the power of technology to work in harmony with nature to solve the problems facing our world today, from food security to reducing our carbon footprint.
We pride ourselves in being bold and forging our own path through disruptive thinking and a growth-hacking mentality. We also love learning and exchanging ideas with other brilliant, creative people.
If you share our passion for solving critical problems, and want to make a positive impact on the world, we’d be excited to hear from you.
