Did you know that 1/3 of all food produced is wasted?
Or that if food waste was a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases, after the US and China?
At Better Origin, our vision is to fix the broken food chain.
And we work with supermarkets and food producers to make that vision a reality.
Our technology mitigates food waste and decarbonises the food system.
About us: Building a sustainable food chain
Think about it - waste is a human-made problem. In nature, what we consider “food waste” gets upcycled with the help of many organisms – from bacteria to insects.
At Better Origin we are mimicking nature by bringing together this wonderful natural phenomenon with cutting-edge technology.
Our Product: The Better Origin X1
The Better Origin X1, is an AI-powered fully automated insect mini-farm. Inside what looks like a standard shipping container, technology and nature work together to convert waste into high-value nutrients.
We challenge the status quo and like to push the industry forward in our own way, focusing on decentralised modules instead of centralised, costly factories.
We take pride in tackling problems most people wouldn’t dare to solve, and we love doing so in our own way.
There’s never been a better time to join a sustainability-focused business, as the whole world is waking up to the changes we need to make to safeguard our planet.
And while some might just dream or promise a better future – we dare to build it.
We have signed a contract with Morrisons – UK's 4th largest supermarket – to convert their fruit and veg waste into feed for their hens. In what is a fully circular model, the project will mitigate over 5,700 tonnes of CO2e and help the retailer launch net zero eggs.
We have just raised a $16 million Series A funding round led by Balderton - one of the top European venture capital investors focused on technology companies with the potential to disrupt huge industries.
