Opportunity description

Industry challenge

Unsuitable waste management practices mean there is a significant accumulation of food waste in landfills, with over 8 million tonnes of waste per year in Australia alone, leading to detrimental greenhouse gas emissions. Overuse of synthetic fertilizers in agricultural farming practices over recent years has exacerbated the degradation of soil health, negatively impacting waterways, soil biology, and contributing to global warming. And with Australia’s reliance on imported fertilisers, we are seeing supply chain issues, higher costs, and other challenges for the agriculture industry.

Food2Soil have developed a process that diverts food and coffee waste from landfill thereby reducing harmful GHG emissions. Our fermented biofertiliser product then directly addresses poor soil, plant health and plant resistance to abiotic stress factors. Food2Soil provides an alternative and/or addition to synthetic chemical fertilisers and helps reduce their overuse. Food2Soil production reduces supply chain issues for imported fertilisers and is a safer product for customers to handle and use.

Current opportunity

Food2Soil is currently raising $1m to contribute to a 3 year runway and is inviting interest from Venture Capital, Corporates, Angel, and Private equity investors to help scale and expand their current production system so they can continue to meet higher demand.

Food2Soil are keen to talk to potential strategic partners who are interested in agri-technology and soil health innovation and are willing to look beyond standard conventional farming and gardening to new evidence based alternative and complimentary methods. We also welcome female business investors & advisors with an understanding of capital raising and product-based sustainability impact driven business.

Opportunity background

Food2Soil is the only product on the market made from commercial & industrial food and coffee waste that contains both nutrients and beneficial 'alive' microbes. We are returning nutrients back to soil with live biology which supports soil to grow more food naturally. Its a paddock to paddock solution!

Not only do we divert food waste from landfill but we create healthy plants and soils. When soil is healthy, it holds moisture, holds its structure and reduces soil loss, healthy soil sequesters carbon from the atmosphere.

Truly Circular Economy, the Food2Soil model is low in energy and can be located any town or city, decentralising fertiliser production and carbon miles in distribution (currently 95% of urea & potassium is imported). In the future, we foresee many F2S Brewhaus nationally and internationally, creating natural, safe & nutritious biofertiliser
