Over 30% of the world’s food is wasted before reaching the end consumer.
At the same time farmers seek new, sustainable feed sources for their livestock.
HATCH is creating more sustainable food systems via its innovative 'insect bioconversion' technology, using food waste to produce natural and safe protein for the world's food future.
Using insects, HATCH aims to divert over 30,000 tonnes of food waste from landfill each year, from just one of its many planned bioconversion facilities. In greenhouse CO2 emissions alone, this is equivalent to taking 5,000 cars off the road. It also prevents 1,000 megalitres (400 Olympic sized swimming pools) of water from being wasted in producing that food in the first place.
HATCH sustainably produced products including protein meals, oils, and organic fertiliser will come into production mid 2019.
