Why choose Mobius for Sustainable Food Waste Management

Reduced Carbon Footprint

By effectively managing and recycling food waste, we can reduce the amount of waste in landfills, a significant source of methane which is a potent greenhouse gas.

Maximised Food & Co-product Value

Another benefit of using Mobius is maximising food and co-product value. By converting food waste into valuable resources such as animal feed, we can make the most out of our food and co-products. This not only reduces waste but also creates a source of revenue.

Optimised Collections

Optimising the collection frequency of food waste is also a crucial aspect of how Mobius supports its customers. This efficiency improvement can save time and resources, making it a cost-effective solution for businesses and institutions.


Mobius works in partnership with SugaRich and AB Nutrition to transform surplus food products into high-quality, nutritious animal feed. The benefits of this partnership include:

Our team of experts have years of experience of working within the food industry. We use our knowledge of the animal feed market to provide our customers with the correct value for any food wastes. We are all trained to a high level in HACCP principles which is necessary to advise our customers of how to ensure the safety of material destined for the food chain. Segregation and collection methods are devised to fit with the needs of the customer and to suit the nature of the food product.

Transforming Surplus Food into Animal Feed

Back at our processing sites, which are strategically positioned around the country, the collected surplus food is then transformed into nutritionally balanced, high-performance animal feed ingredients. This transformation process is environmentally friendly and cost-effective, making it a sustainable choice for businesses.

Other Uses for Food Waste

Anaerobic Digestion

Not all food wastes are suitable for animal feed. Very heavily packaged foods or foods containing prohibited substances such as animal proteins, are not allowed to be used in animal feed. For these foods there is another green solution.

Anaerobic digestion has become a popular method for managing food waste, a biological process that converts food into renewable energy.

The anaerobic digestion process involves the breakdown of food waste and other organic materials by microbes in a sealed vessel, known as a digester, in the absence of oxygen. This process produces biogas, which can be used to generate biomethane; which can be converted into electricity and heat.

What is SugaTrak, and how does it help in waste management?

SugaTrak is a technology developed by SugaRich that helps analyse and optimise the flow of waste. It tracks the movement of materials through key areas on-site and identifies innovative ways to streamline it. This maximises the collection and efficient use of waste materials.

What are the principles followed by Mobius and SugaRich in their waste management process?

The key principles include expert auditing, waste segregation, innovation, and optimised collections. These principles are followed to manage waste more effectively, prevent it from ending up in landfills, and convert it into valuable resources.

Why is anaerobic digestion a popular method for managing food waste?

Anaerobic digestion is a process where food waste and other organic materials are broken down by microbes in a sealed vessel or digester to produce biogas. This biogas can be used to generate electricity and heat. It’s a sustainable solution that not only manages waste but also produces renewable energy.

How does the anaerobic digestion process work?

In the anaerobic digestion process, organic waste is pre-treated and fed into an anaerobic digester. In the absence of oxygen, bacteria break down the organic matter, producing biogas as a by-product. This biogas can then be used to generate electricity and heat.

What are the benefits of using anaerobic digestion for food waste management?

Anaerobic digestion helps manage waste effectively, reduces the emission of greenhouse gases, and contributes to the production of clean energy. It also prevents organic waste from ending up in landfills.
