HERO - A EUROPEAN STANDARD

By 2023 all EU countries must take care of and collect food waste. This is a small revolution in our industry since it affects how we develop kitchen interiors and storage solutions. 

IMA has been working together with different national associations in waste disposal, to try to come up with a solution that can be used all over Europe. And the result is our very own HERO.

CIRCULAR HOME LIFE

Waste is both a large source of renewable materials and a source of energy. To be able to reuse materials and reduce the use of fossile energy sources we have to start by making it possible for people to collect and sort waste in their daily life. This is what we are dedicated to everyday. 

Developing smart and beautiful solutions that encourages and enables people to take care of their waste in their kitchens. And give them easy ways to bring it to garbage stations. 

The life of the many people can be made circular when it comes to waste if it is convenient to collect and sort it. Every kitchen should be equipped with good solutions for this. That is our mission.

We operate in Sweden that is a country with access to green and renewable energy sources. Our production lines are highly automated and effective to ensure a sustainable and optimal energy consumption. IMA is and will be a company dedicated to responsible energy usage. But we also dedicate our work to the giant green energy source that food waste constitutes. By influencing organizations and companies to standardize food waste collecting and making it possible we strive to contribute.
