Don't just dream about a better future - build it.

In nature, what we consider “food waste” gets upcycled with the help of many organisms – from bacteria to insects. 

At Better Origin, we bring this wonderful natural phenomenon together with cutting-edge technology.

Our values

LEAVE NO ROOM
FOR WASTE

Frugality and being smart with resources is at the heart of the food chain we’re building – and at the heart of out work.

DO THINGS
OUR OWN WAY

We could have built a big factory. Instead, we squeezed one inside a container and made it deployable anywhere in the world.

FOCUS ON
THE CUSTOMER

We want to make insect farming easy and we look to our farmers’ feedback to continuously make the X1 better.

DARE
TO EXPLORE

For us, it’s better to make mistakes when trying out new ideas than to stick to a narrow path out of fear of failure.

WORK FOR
THE TEAM

If we succeed, we succeed together – and the things we need to do cannot be achieved by just one person.

Join us

Now is the best time to join our team as it’s set to triple in size in 2022.

If you are hardworking, creative, with a drive to solve global-reaching problems and shape a new industry, we would love to hear from you.

Whether you’re English or Brazilian, French or Greek, you’ll feel at home with us. We’re a diverse team and benefit from different ways of thinking and solving problems.

💻 We work flexibly.
