Product DNA

Reduce your food waste by over 80% in one touch.

Transform your food waste into sterile and odourless EcoChips™. The grinding bucket can contain up to 2L of food scraps that would be reduced to 0.34L EcoChips™. Food scraps go on landfill to handful in just a few hours.

Use recycled food waste Ecochips™ in the garden.

One touch automatic 3-stage cycle, dehydrates, grinds and cools down your food waste while fltering odours and methane gasses. Then, you can use the EcoChips™ by mixing them into the topsoil on your indoor and outdoor plants.

Ecochips™ don't release destructive methane gas.

Methane gas is released into the atmosphere when food waste mixed with other organics rots in landfill. Methane is a greenhouse gas that is damaging to the environment and is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide.

The Foodcycler® uses 6 times less energy per month.

Sophisticated sensor technology defines each individual cycle to use minimal energy with maximum effiency.***
