EU Legislation on food waste

By 2023 all EU countries must take care of and collect food waste. This means that kitchen interiors must be developed to make that possible for people.

As a developer of storage solutions and as a producer of waste solutions for kitchens in several European countries we take this challenge serious. We want to make it easy for both the kitchen industry and people in their homes to collect their food waste in a convenient way.


We have been working with different national associations in waste disposal when we developed our food waste bin HERO. It is a ventilated bin, specialized in collecting food waste that fits all drawers and cabinets and goes together with all different types of bags that are used throughout EU.


We hope that HERO food waste bin is going to help make a difference. We need to learn to take care of our food waste in a proper way and to use the right equipment is at big part of that. There are two basic guidelines to follow:


Always use a bin that is ventilated on all sides and bottom. HERO is right now one of few bins on the market that has a ventilated bottom.


Don’t put a lid on the food waste bin. It won´t smell until the decomposition process starts and that won´t happen if you keep it open and ventilated.


We are proud to be a part of this important work to take care of waste to be able to create new energy and we will continue to develop new solutions.
