Tackling the Issue of Food Waste Globally
n recent months, investors’ focus shifted towards the social impact and addressing the environmental crisis. An estimated 1.3 billion tonnes of food is wasted globally each year; tackling this issue not only responds to the ESG factors but also helps to close the loop in the food industry, bringing the unutilised resources back into the chain. Two opportunities that address this issue are Extracta and Meals In Minutes. Despite representing different market segments, geographies, and business models, the two address the same market gap of food waste being an unutilised resource, therefore portraying its ubiquitousness and widespread applicability.
Meals In Minutes: tackling food waste at the start of the chain, a fast-growing producer & distributor of healthy ready-to-cook meals.
Malaysia-based Meals in Minutes deliver portioned and ready-to-cook meals using all-natural ingredients, with no additives, GMOs, artificial substances. The purpose is to simplify cooking and shorten preparation times for hectic lifestyles, disrupting the food & beverage retail landscape. MiM is HACCP, HALAL, and GMP approved.
Extracta – addressing food waste recycling at the end of the chain, converting food waste to reclaim valuable plant ingredients.
Extracta developed a process to reclaim valuable plant ingredients from farming waste, in order to produce and sell high-value products from agricultural waste and allowing multiple waste streams to be treated at strategic locations, using technologies that achieve economies of scale and mitigates availability problems of feedstocks due to seasonal factors.
