Food waste is the largest waste issue in the world. Whether it be food that never leaves the farm, food that is lost during transport, or food that is wasted from the hospitality sector and households
Food waste is the largest waste issue in the world. Whether it be food that never leaves the farm, food that is lost during transport, or food that is wasted from the hospitality sector and households, it has significant economic and environmental impacts. Food waste in Australia alone costs the economy around $20 billion each year, with 300kg of food per person being wasted. That’s about 7.3 million tonnes in total. Typically, food waste is sent to landfill, robbing the soil of important nutrients which are then replaced with artificial fertilisers that reduce the taste and nutritional value of the food we consume. To address the challenge in Australia, in 2016 the Government committed to convene a food waste summit and develop a national food waste strategy to halve our food waste by 2030.
Cue Enrich360, the innovative solution directly supporting the government’s strategy by seeking to recycle unavoidable food waste into a resource, diverting it from landfill back to the soil.
What is Enrich360:
Enrich360 is a range of food waste bio-dehydrators that use technology from South Korea (a country that has banned food waste in landfill) to turn waste into fertiliser. The machines utilise a fully automated process of dehydration, sterilisation and volume reduction of up to 93%. For example, a restaurant producing 200 kilograms of food waste each week can reduce it to between 15kg and 20kg. The resulting powder is sterile and pathogen free, rich in nutrients and nitrogen, with the consistency of coffee grounds.
Vanrooy Machinery are proud to stock the entire Enrich360 range.
