Feed the world

Incredible amounts of land and water are needed to grow te cereal crops and soya to support the 20 billion livestock that produce meat, milk and eggs (at the same time 800 million people suffer from starvation).

On a global scale, farming is responsible for a quarter of the total release of greenhouse gas emissions. The main contribution factors are livestock farming and deforestation to clear land for agricultural use. Fortunately, all over the world attention is growing for climate-smart agriculture, such as planting trees near agricultural land.

Growing attention for climate-smart agriculture, worldwide!

How much do livestock eat?*

Food into Feed

In the past, pigs and poultry were free to roam around in the farmyard and eat what they found.
Residential food scraps were collected in towns and cities and fed to livestock

Better for the environment

Agricultural produce was for human consumption, the waste left on the land was for the animals.
The pigs and poultry fed our animal feed, also eat our food waste.

Reduced Carbon Footprint

By processing high-value waste streams from the food industry into animal feed,
we can significantly reduce the carbon footprint of our feed.
This means we can reduce our imports of raw materials, and effictively ‘use’ less agricultural land,
resulting in considerably lower CO2 emissions.

Feed the animals

Pigs and Kipster chickens eat hig-grade feed made from waste that people don’t eat.
