MAEKO, a Malaysian startup, has developed a way for businesses to quickly compost food waste on premise so that they can send it back to farms for use as fertilizer for future food. The company has already converted over seven million kilos of food waste from factories, gas stations, hotels, and hospitals into usable compost. Customers include Shell, HSBC, and Kimberly Clark. It is one of 17 start-ups participating in the World Economic Forum’s The Circulars Accelerator Cohort 2021.
