The insect solution to food waste
We are using nature’s best upcyclers – the black soldier fly larvae – to process waste into animal feed. Our solution empowers farmers to produce feed locally and sustainably.
Our product – the Better Origin X1 – is plug & play and easily scalable. Individual modules can also supply regional processing units, allowing the nutrients from organic matter to be used across a network.
The future of food security is at risk
We reduce waste and increase food production by bringing back the missing link in our food chain: insects.
WE NEED TO PRODUCE MORE FOOD
The global population is expected to surpass nine billion by 2050. Food production will need to increase by 70% to meet this demand.
WE MUST REDUCE FOOD WASTE
In the UK alone, 10 million tonnes of food are wasted each year. Globally, a third of all food produced goes to waste. This amounts to 1.3 billion tonnes of waste across the food chain, and an economic loss of $1 trillion.
WE MUST SOLVE THIS IN A SUSTAINABLE MANNER
Much of this waste ends up in landfill or outdated composting plants, emitting up to 4.4 gigatonnes of CO2-equivalents. And if food waste were a country, it would be the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases.
