Meiko Germany and Swiss firm Biotrans have co-founded Meiko GREEN Waste Solutions which aims to harness kitchen and food waste, allowing the valuable raw material to be reused for energy production.
“Food waste is an important issue but it’s also problematic,” says Meiko CEO, Dr Ing, Stefan Scheringer. “By using our innovative technology, we can make a contribution to solving this problem. And we can also contribute to valuable further utilisation, namely, to energy production. Apparent rubbish is thus turned into a precious raw material for energy production and this material is generated every day.”
The Swiss company Biotrans, headed by CEO Patrick Hoffman, has developed products and services which compliment Meiko’s own solutions for handling and processing food waste.
The move brings together a wealth of experience and knowledge of international hygiene standards across all areas of the foodservice industry.
“We have found the green solution,” says Hoffmann. “Meiko GREEN Waste Solutions brings ethical and sustainable solutions to food waste disposal for our customers. Tailored to their exact needs, our solutions create a sustainable return from food waste, but also help to improve the customer’s working processes, saving labour and boosting efficiency and improving hygiene in the workplace.”
