Maximum Impact, Zero Emissions.

Transforming your food waste into sustainable agricultural inputs to reduce your business' carbon footprint.

In a world where sustainability and environmental responsibility have become paramount, businesses are seeking innovative ways to reduce their carbon footprint. One major source of Scope 3 emissions for businesses is food waste. Bardee provides an unparalled, sustainable solution for food waste management by transforming food waste into protein and fertiliser with insects. Our technology and services support better environmental outcomes in four key ways: 

  1. Diverting your food waste from landfills significantly reduces your carbon footprint by preventing methane gas emissions;
  2. Upcycling food waste into sustainable agricultural inputs for local farms creates a more sustainable, resilient food system for everyone;
  3. Substituting meat, fish and soy in animal feed and pet food with insect protein prevents deforestation, overfishing and emissions;
  4. Reducing the use of synthetic and mined fertilisers protects our waterways from damaging fertiliser runoff and supports land and marine biodiversty.

The Impact of Food Waste on Emissions 

Food waste is a significant contributor to greenhouse gas emissions, both globally and in Australia. Globally, approximately 1.3 billion tonnes of food are wasted each year, accounting for roughly 8% of total greenhouse gas emissions. In fact, if food waste were a country, it would be the third-largest emitter of greenhouse gases after the United States and China. In Australia alone, it's estimated that nearly 7.3 million tonnes of food are wasted annually, contributing significantly to the nation's carbon footprint. When food waste decomposes in landfills, it releases methane, a potent greenhouse gas that is 80 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide. By addressing food waste, businesses can make a substantial impact on their carbon footprint and combat climate change.

Bardee's Sustainable Food Waste Solution

Bardee's vision is to offer the most sustainable and cost effective food waste solution on the market. Our innovative technology converts food waste into valuable resources - protein and fertilisers - using insects as a key component.

"The cost is competitive but with far superior environmental outcomes." - Property Portfolio Manager

This approach not only diverts food waste from landfills but also creates sustainable alternatives that can replace resource-intensive inputs in the agricultural industry.

This substantial reduction contributes to a more eco-friendly business operation and supports companies in their journey towards carbon neutrality.

Saving on Carbon Offsets

Bardee's cost-competitive service is a win-win for businesses. Using Bardee's service allows companies to reduce their carbon footprint significantly. The current value of ACCUs is already substantial, with prices reaching approximately $50 per ACCU.

Our innovative approach of converting food waste into protein and fertilisers with insects allows us to offset at least 2.5 tonnes of additional CO2e emissions.

Creating a Sustainable and Resilient Food System

At Bardee, we believe in closing the loop and creating a sustainable and resilient food system. Our approach is simple yet transformative: recover the nutrients from food waste and transform them into valuable resources. By doing so, we enable local farms to grow more food sustainably, thus supporting the food security of the entire city. A circular approach like this not only minimises waste but also maximises the efficient use of resources, making our communities more self-reliant and resilient in the face of environmental challenges.

Bardee's Positive Impact on Local Agriculture

Bardee's insect protein serves as a direct substitute for fish, meat, and soy in livestock feeds, which helps to prevent overfishing, deforestation, and carbon emissions. By choosing our sustainable food waste solution, you play a vital role in preserving marine ecosystems and reducing the environmental impact associated with resource-intensive meat and soy production.

Similarly, Bardee's Superfly fertiliser replaces synthetic and mined fertilisers on the crops that grow our food. This promotes a more eco-friendly approach to farming, contributing to healthier soils and minimizing the negative environmental effects of traditional fertilisers. In essence, working with Bardee means you are embracing a circular economy where food waste is transformed into valuable resources that benefit both your business and the environment. Together, we can build a more sustainable future, supporting Aussie farms, reducing carbon emissions, and promoting a resilient food system for generations to come.

Using Bardee's products in your business

Using Bardee's Superfly fertiliser, businesses can nurture gardens and indoor plants with vibrant growth while reducing their environmental impact. Made from 100% black soldier fly castings and exoskeletons, Superfly is an eco-friendly alternative to conventional fertilisers, upcycling nutrients from organic food waste. Restaurants and events can also contribute to sustainability by sourcing meat, seafood, and wine from farms and vineyards using Bardee's insect protein and Superfly fertiliser.
