Creating agronomic sustainability

In Canada, 40 per cent of food losses occur at the retail level before the food ever sees a grocery cart. The Bio-Cycle production model reduces compostable food waste – upwards of 32 tonnes per day – to create a sulphur amended compost blend.

Sustainability – creating a productive and viable agricultural future – is the core of our business. >> Contact us to learn more!
