Managed organic waste program

Professional organic waste removal and diversion

Want to save money on your organic waste?

For retailers with an existing donation program in place, we can help you divert whatever food you can’t give to charity, by connecting you to a network of local farmers to collect whatever organic waste is left over.

That means you can divert more away from waste streams, and spend less on your monthly waste-hauling fees.

Financial benefits: A case study

The problem

With waste transportation, equipment, and disposal costs on the rise, one large Canadian retailer asked FoodMesh to help it find more cost-effective ways of disposing of its organic waste, while also delivering on its sustainability promise to keep as much of its unsalable food out of landfill as possible.

Our solution

FoodMesh built a network of local farmers to collect this retailer’s inedible organics directly from each store, to use for animal feed. The collection of the food was scheduled according to the unique organic waste needs of each store, and FoodMesh worked with each farmer to ensure the food was collected consistently on that schedule. The retailer’s existing edible food donation program continued as normal.

The results

Through working with FoodMesh to divert its inedible organics to local farmers, this retailer saw its monthly waste costs go down across its stores. One store reported cost savings of an average of $800 every month.
