enrich360® is a program designed to save our soil, remove food waste from landfill and provide us with more nutritious tastier food.
This is how enrich360® works:
enrich360® members convert their food waste into nutrient rich organic fertiliser by the use of enrich360 bio-dehydration machines.
enrich360® certified distributors collect their fertiliser and give it back to their farmers stopping the food waste from going into landfill and putting it to good use. This reduces the methane that destroys our ozone layer.
enrich360® farmers grow better, more nutritious produce whilst helping to stop soil degradation and so the cycle begins.
The more you support the participating enrich360® member food establishments, the more support the farmers get with enrich360® fertiliser the more we are enriched. (See note below regardng direct land application in NSW, Australia)

the enrich360® program:
enrich360® offers certification to those organisations and individuals demonstrating compliance with the enrich360® Program and enrich360® principles and standards in their operations as assessed in the enrich360® accreditation process.
enrich360® categories: Producer (Farm); Product Distributor; Retailer – Red; Retailer – Gold; Technology/Machinery; IT Traceability Provider; Waste Logistics; Composter; Waste Processor; or other categories as agreed.
enrich360® waste logistics
enrich360® works with a national distribution chain that gets the enrich360® certified produce to the restaurants, collects food waste converted to biomass which is a component of enrich360® certified fertiliser which is then returned to the enrich360® certified farms ensuring the cycle continues.
Wherever we can we use available return capacity in our logistics partners operations, instead of running specific vehicles, to reduce our impact on the environment further.
enrich360® food waste dehydrators
enrich360® offers a range of high quality food waste bio-dehydrators, including full installation and ongoing servicing. Capacity range from 22 kg to 1 tonne of food waste per day.
In these machines food waste goes through a fully automatic process of dehydration, sterilisation and volume reduction. No additives are required – no water, no sawdust, no enzymes. The equipment requires only the input of electrical power (or gas) for motors and heat energy.
The enrich360® app
enrich360® app is coming soon. Find participating restaurants and food businesses and make the choice to ‘save our soil’ as you dine.
The enrich360® app give customers the opportunity to search for local restaurants who are part of the program. The app allows restaurants and other participants to update their information, including links to social media, photo gallery, menus, promotions and even upload videos.
Another key feature of the enrich360® app is the produce trace-ability functionality – diners can look at the produce supplied to you and see up to date information about what farm the produce came from.
enrich360® fertiliser products will be available soon. Watch out for certified stockists – coming soon.
Field trials are currently underway. If you are a farm and would like to trial the enrich360® range, complete the contact us form and we will get some samples out to you to try. Products will include:
- Soil Conditioner/fertiliser
- Mulch Fertiliser
- Palletised Fertiliser
Improve plant grow and rebuild soil health with enrich360® fertiliser.
Please note: the outputs of the enrich360® dehydrator are not currently approved for direct application to land in NSW, Australia. We do however have collection and disposal arrangements in place for NSW customers and all collected outputs are then composted for use on NSW farms and landscaping uses.
Direct application approval will be available late 2019.
enrich360® Certified Produce
enrich360® certified farms and distributors coming soon. If you’re a chef, you want the best ingredients for your creations. If you want more nutritious, better tasting produce then enrich360® farms and distributors are the place to look.
enrich360® was formed to help reduce landfill, help reduce soil degradation and help grow better more nutritious produce.
In2food including TandF Allstates and Yarra Valley Farms has committed to supporting enrich360® in achieving our aims and we are grateful for their support of the program.

"33 percent of soil is moderately to highly degraded due to erosion, loss of soil organic matter, nutrient depletion, acidification, salinization, compaction and chemical pollution. However, sustainable management and careful farming techniques can reverse the trend of soil degradation and ensure current and future global food security."Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations
"When it comes to the environment we all know that it needs to be helped but it's often hard to know how to really make a difference. To me eating at an enrich 360 certified restaurant is a simple and effective way to do something that works."Greg Mannock
