Food waste comes in, animal feed comes out
Inside the Better Origin X1, waste is consumed by insects, which then provide nutrient-rich food for animals.
Join supermarkets, farmers and food producers who decarbonise their supply chains, tackle food waste, and reduce soy use with the Better Origin X1.
Carbon-negative animal feed
Insects need far less water and land than conventional feeds like soy. They can also be grown directly on a farm, saving over 574 tonnes of CO₂e a year.
Rich in protein and other key nutrients, insect feed improves animal welfare and boosts productivity.

REDUCING SOY USE
Making food waste a thing of the past
Food waste accounts for 10% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions.
If it was up to nature, waste wouldn’t exist – it would be absorbed by the soil or eaten by insects.
We are bringing this solution back into modern agriculture, allowing farmers to tackle over 150 tonnes of waste a year with just one container.

“Insect feed is the best enrichment we’ve ever come across.”
“We think this could be the future of egg farming.”
Head of Agriculture
“The hens absolutely love it – we have seen the best feather coverage in 9 years.”
“The Better Origin team are working to fundamentally change our broken food chain, for the benefit of everyone.”
“If insects could reduce the dominance of rainforest-destroying soy as the feed of choice for UK chickens, the benefits could be enormous.”
“Insects could well become the future for feed
in egg farming.”
