Well the clue is in the title, it’s wasted when it can be used for so much more.
Today, one third of food is wasted. And 70% of that wastage takes place before we even see it on our plate. The majority of it ends up in landfill which doesn’t just mean we are polluting the earth and wasting food, it actually creates methane - a greenhouse gas 30x more potent than carbon dioxide.
We want to reshape the global food system, for the better. Bardee have built a world-class vertical farming system for Black Soldier Flies to not only consume the food waste, but turn it into something that helps other things grow, like fertiliser or tasty pet food.
By turning it into something else, we create a circular economy that benefits people, animals and plants, as well as the environment. At Bardee, our solution is pet food, animal feed and fertiliser,but we know of lots of other amazing companies who are turning waste into resource - check out Great Wrap for example!
Well, to us they’re pretty special but it’s not magic, it’s biology and the circle of life. Just like what Mufasa said, except our gazelles don’t gallop, they soar.
It’s a straightforward process if the conditions are right. Our life's work at Bardee is all centered around optimising those conditions - oh and the flies have their preferences.
We don’t need to be wasting food at all, there are ways to avoid polluting the earth in landfill sites. Feed our flies, not the bin.
