Case study

About the company

Nutrition 101 is a food waste and recycling company and a go-to partner for food manufacturers seeking sustainable waste management solutions. The company cost-effectively converts food waste into affordable and nutritious livestock feed, compost and green energy products. As a result, food waste, landfill usage and greenhouse gas emissions are significantly reduced.

Investment rationale

  • The company operates in a c.US$600bn dairy market that develops a variety of nutrient dense foods. The business is expected to benefit from the tailwinds supporting sustainable food production.
  • There are significant barriers to entry due to the operational and technical know-how, physical assets and scale required.
  • The company has visible revenue streams due to strong relationships and multi-year agreements with tenured blue-chip food manufacturers and customers requiring livestock feed.
