There's Money in Flies, Food waste and Fertilisers

Malaysians are still wasting plenty of food, despite having to fork out more money for meals nowadays. According to the Solid Waste Management and Public Cleansing Corporation (SWCorp), in 2021, Malaysians generated 17,007 tonnes of food waste per day in 2021 – enough to fill one-and-a-half Olympic-sized swimming pools.

Sean Tan, CEO of Insect Feed Technologies discovered how to utilise technology to rear and breed the black soldier fly to be incorporated in upcycling food waste. Through an in-house proprietary treatment, the team then translates black soldier fly larvae into a sustainable and healthier alternative for animal feed, and replaces chemical fertilisers for plants.
