Food Waste Consultant and Organic Waste Processing Expert Service

Read this to find out how my knowledge as a Food Waste Consultant and Organic Waste Processing Expert may help organisations which produce, or handle, this type of waste, such as:

  • Local authorities
  • Catering establishments and hospitality industry businesses
  • Organisations with canteens, hospitals, etc
  • Recycling businesses.

Food waste is a huge problem globally. Each year, developed nations waste billions of dollars worth of food.

Most of this wasted food has been ending up in landfills, where it releases methane, a greenhouse gas that contributes to climate change. A possible alternative may be incineration but the high water content of this type of waste means that the energy extracted that way is negligible, and the cost is similar to landfilling.

Paying waste disposal charges has until now been the only option, and the lowest charges for food waste were often the gate fees at biogas plants where the organic content is truly valuable in producing biogas. That is still the most environmentally preferable method of disposal, but in 2022 biogas plant operators started to pay for high-quality organic pulp.

Image text: "Food waste consultant advice don't send it to landfill."Two recent changes have brought with them the opportunity for those with unavoidable waste food and similar organic materials to dispose of:

  1. High energy prices now mean that biogas plant operators are willing to pay for the right quality of food waste,
  2. New Food Waste Depackaging Machines are now available which for the first time make this form of organic waste worth processing to add value to it and instead of this material being a net burden on businesses it can now be recycled as an asset.

The result can mean big savings for those who have food waste to dispose of, while at the same time moving to a much more sustainable disposal method.

If your business produces food waste, you need to find a way to dispose of it properly, and save money.

Maximizing the Benefits of Food Waste Processing Equipment: How a Consultant Can Help

Food waste is a growing problem worldwide, and businesses are increasingly looking for effective solutions to manage their food waste.

As food waste disposal costs rise, food waste processing equipment is becoming more popular as a way to manage food waste effectively, but there are several challenges that businesses face when buying and using this equipment.

In this article, we will discuss the five problems commonly encountered when buying and using food waste processing equipment, and how a food waste consultant can help businesses overcome these challenges.

Problem 1: Choosing the Right Equipment

One of the biggest challenges when buying food waste processing equipment is choosing the right equipment for your business. There are various types of food waste processing equipment available, each with its own set of benefits and drawbacks. It can be challenging to choose the right equipment that meets your specific needs and budget.

Problem 2: Lack of Expertise

Many businesses lack the expertise required to operate food waste processing equipment effectively. It is crucial to have a thorough understanding of how the equipment works and how to maintain it properly to ensure that it operates efficiently and effectively.

Most of all, selecting equipment that is genuinely sustainable can be hard, as most still shred the unavoidable plastic contamination in all kitchen waste into tiny pieces. That’s a big no-no! Just let animal lovers know you are doing that, now that the dangers to wildlife from microplastics are well-known and the sustainability of your business could take a huge knock!

Problem 3: Contamination

Contamination is another challenge that businesses face when using food waste processing equipment, and it is not just plastic which can cause big problems. Contaminated food waste can lead to unexpected items which can jam and block the system leading to equipment failure, increased maintenance costs, and reduced efficiency. Accessing the machinery, to free up blockages, can be dangerous and placing hands in contact with stale food is a very real form of contamination that can also have health and safety implications for employees.

Problem 4: Regulatory Compliance

All equipment in the workplace is subject to the Workplace Safety Regulations which apply in the  UK. Imported equipment may not comply, especially if moving parts are not adequately shielded. So, regulatory compliance is essential when it comes to food waste processing equipment.

Many businesses struggle to keep up with changing regulations and may not be aware of the regulatory requirements for their equipment. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines, legal issues, and reputational damage.

Problem 5: Cost

Cost is always a concern when buying and using food waste processing equipment. The upfront cost of equipment can be significant, and ongoing maintenance costs can also add up over time. It is essential to balance the benefits of the equipment with the cost to ensure that it is a sound investment for your business.

Unless, food waste equipment adds value in a manner which allows the output to be sold, for example as animal feed it will be a drain on the business finances. The food waste consultant will identify the necessary market and value of the output in order to assist your organisation with the projected ROI and investment case.

How a Food Waste Consultant Can Help

A food waste consultant can help businesses overcome these challenges by providing expert advice and guidance on food waste processing equipment. A food waste consultant can:

  • Help businesses choose the right equipment for their specific needs and budget
  • Provide training and support to ensure that employees have the expertise required to operate the equipment effectively
  • help choose the right equipment to avoid contamination problems and to ensure that the equipment operates efficiently
  • Ensure regulatory compliance by keeping up-to-date with changing regulations and providing guidance on compliance requirements
  • Evaluate the cost-benefit of food waste processing equipment and provide recommendations for cost-effective solutions.


Food waste processing equipment can be an effective solution for managing food waste in businesses, but there are several challenges that businesses face when buying and using this equipment.

By working with a food waste consultant, such as IPPTS Associates, businesses can overcome these challenges and ensure that their food waste processing equipment operates efficiently and effectively.
