Project Description

Our project is related to the enormous amount of organic waste that households and restaurants located in our city throw away instead of utilizing them. After processing, biodegradable waste is a great source of beneficial substances for the soil in the form of compost, and also a source of biogas energy. We are trying to build a system in which the waste generated can be used as a resource. We have found companies and organizations that need organic matter in their business so we would like to connect all stakeholders in a network where zero food waste certification will ensure efficiency and quality.

Success Story

During the Greenhouse program, we had the opportunity to hold multiple conversations with potential customers, we had access to useful information to conduct our market and consumer surveys. We made experiments with potential customers, and we were able to draw the necessary conclusions to validate our solution. We have developed marketing materials and received support from various companies, organizations, and a sign of interest from the municipality.
