Pitch

We offer a waste management solution for food businesses, collecting and processing organic waste into animal feed.


Description

Summary

We are a social enterprise focused on creating regenerative solutions and forming alliances for a zero waste world. We are focusing on food waste and kitchen scraps from the gastronomic sector of Lima, Peru, considered the best food destination in the world. Today, most restaurant waste is trucked off illegally by informal swine producers or taken to landfills. The swine producers burn plastics to boil organic waste, creating toxic air pollution; while landfills are poorly kept and emit high amounts of methane into the atmosphere.

We work with restaurants to put into place a system where they separate their organic waste. We then pick it up and take it to our Bio-Factory, where, through a pasteurization and fermentation process, we create high quality swine feed.

This feed is then provided to informal swine producers all along the periphery of Lima, who thus avoid the trouble of having to pick up their own organic waste and boiling it under toxic conditions. 

In this way, we are able to save a lot of food waste, create conscience in the food industry and its clients and improve the livelihoods of a highly vulnerable population, creating a positive triple impact.
