The Food Waste Problem in Canada

Despite Canada's reputation for being a world leader of green initiatives, we’re also among the most prolific generators of food waste. In fact, Canada is one of the planet's leading producers of preventable food waste, with each person amassing 172 kg of food waste every year. That’s 122 kgs of fruit and vegetables, 18 kgs of oils, fats and sugars, 26 kgs of meat and 6 kgs of dairy products, per year, per person - and most of it ends up in landfills.

It’s a shocking waste of resources that leads to a distressing influx of landfill greenhouse gas emissions. Households are by far the worst contributors, making up almost half of the food waste produced in the country.  We're talking 47% as compared to the foodservice industry's 9%.

You know we can do better than this - and thanks to the green technology of the FoodCycler™, being better has never been easier.

The Health Effects of Waste Management

When most people throw out their leftovers, they’re out of sight, out of mind. But they’re actually everywhere - especially in the air around us. Onsite landfill emissions, transportation emissions and power consumption emissions from managing and disposing of food waste takes a heavy toll on our environment.

Landfills in Ontario produce almost 10x the pollution the FoodCycler™ produces (mg PM2.5 per kg of food waste). FoodCycler™ produces less emissions than centralized composting or even backyard composting. Reducing airborne particulates and greenhouse gases helps create a healthier planet and healthier people.

Cutting Back on Greenhouse Gases

The 70 million tons of food waste dumped in landfills every year doesn’t simply decompose. It attracts pests and emits odors, toxic liquids and methane gas - a greenhouse gas that’s up to 30 times more potent than CO2. This is the gas that eats the ozone, and cooks our planet.

The FoodCycler™ reduces food waste by 90% and turns it into a nutrient-rich soil amendment, so rather than creating harmful greenhouses gases, it creates a powerful fertilizer that can revitalize the earth.

Real Economic Value for Municipalities

People are demanding more environmental awareness from their government at all levels, and they’re more likely than ever to get behind green initiatives. By dramatically cutting down on food waste, the FoodCycler™ helps municipalities slash the burden of waste management - an expense shouldered by taxpayers as well as the environment.

Municipalities of any size, in any province can benefit from our green technology. Food waste costs Canadians $31 billion a year, but the FoodCycler™ can significantly reduce haulage, transfer and disposal fees by offering a simple, eco-minded solution at a fraction of the cost of existing waste management infrastructure.

In just a few hours, the FoodCycler’s™ onsite composting technology dehydrates, sterilizes, deodorizes and turns potentially harmful food scraps into safe fertilizer that can be reused as soil amendment, compost accelerant, biofuel, animal feed, and pet food.
