Organic waste valorization
Farming, Processing, Retail
An on-site fully automated insect farming module (called X1), using local organic waste to feed larvae which are harvested after 7-14 days to feed animals. There is no processing nor additives involved.
Food supply will need to grow by 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.
Better Origin is a decentralized food and feed production solution to help protect the food supply chain and food security.
