How it all started
MEIKO has always believed in thinking outside the box. Even back in the 1970s and 1980s, we knew that kitchen waste was a valuable resource that could help boost sustainability. Alongside our warewashing and disinfection solutions, our engineers also develop superior technology for shredding, compressing and collecting food waste and production waste. Our efficient and hygienic systems can handle a wide array of waste, including bones and crustacean and mollusc shells.
Onwards and upwards! In 2004, MEIKO reinforced its reputation for innovation with the launch of a new food waste treatment system that offered a whole new level of flexibility. Based on vacuum technology, the "WasteStar FC" offers a reliable, hygienic and fully automated solution for processing organic waste and leftovers in commercial kitchens.
In 2018, MEIKO signed a deal with BioTrans to work together on new innovations. BioTrans – a Swiss firm specialising in the collection, recycling, storage and disposal of organic waste – pooled its expertise with the MEIKO Group to create MEIKO GREEN Waste Solutions. The launch of the BioMaster® series gave customers greater flexibility than ever before. Outstanding food waste management was now a realistic option for commercial kitchens serving fewer than 1,000 meals a day. And the goal of protecting valuable resources was now one step closer.
Awareness of sustainability issues has been increasing worldwide. By 2020, there was a growing consensus that kitchen waste is an incredibly valuable resource. From alpine huts to cruise ships, and from Abu Dhabi to Zhongshan, the time had come to recognise its true worth. Over 1,000 MEIKO GREEN systems were already up and running, doing their bit for a more sustainable future and achieving impressive savings for operators at the same time.
MEIKO GREEN understands that any workable food waste solution needs to include all the fats, oils and organic waste produced by commercial kitchens. In 2021, we launched our GreaseSeparator product line, a new addition to our range of professional waste collection solutions that took a more hygienic approach to treating kitchen waste water. Everything could now be collected together and sent to a biogas plant for recycling.
