Meiko Germany and Swiss firm Biotrans co-found Meiko Green Waste Solutions

Swiss firm Biotrans has joined the Meiko Group in a joint venture and commitment to sustainability with a shared philosophy that kitchen and food waste should be collected and processed and reused for energy production.

"As a company guided by values, we care about more than numbers," said Meiko CEO, Dr Ing, Stefan Scheringer. "The motivating philosophy is also important. Food waste is an important issue but it's also problematic. By using our innovative technology, we can contribute to solving this problem. And we can also contribute to valuable further utilisation, namely, to energy production. Apparent rubbish is thus turned into a precious raw material for energy production and this material is generated every day.

The Swiss company Biotrans, headed by CEO Patrick Hoffman (pictured), has products and services which compliment Meiko's solutions for handling and processing food waste and the move brings together a wealth of experience and knowledge of international hygiene standards across all areas of the foodservice industry.

"We have found the green solution," adds Hoffmann. "Meiko Green Waste Solutions brings ethical and sustainable solutions to food waste disposal for our customers."
