Whole Foods Market Bellevue and WISErg Corporation, a bio-clean technology company that converts food scraps into organic fertilizer, have agreed to deploy the WISErg Harvester unit at Whole Foods Market Bellevue, Washington.
The Harvester unit will enable Whole Foods Market Bellevue to reduce food waste in a sustainable way and provide data reports to better manage perishable inventory and improve their bottom line. Whole Foods Market Bellevue will also sell WISErganic organic liquid fertilizer.
By identifying the sources of waste, the Harvester gives Whole Foods a more sustainable solution for dealing with their food scraps and provides a solution that minimizes odor and noise associated with compost removal services. The Harvester also captures data about the sources of food scraps that grocers analyze for better inventory management decisions.
