Bokashi Bran Food Waste Management System

The Bokashi Bran® system has been approved by the Johannesburg Environmental Health department for use in commercial kitchens.

The key success factor to implementing the Bokashi system in your business is your commitment, as the owner / manager, to ensure food waste separation at source.

We train kitchen staff and waitrons to separate wet and dry waste. Wet waste into the specially labeled blue 50 litre drums and the dry waste into the black kitchen bins.

The food waste is then processed through the macerating machine where it is macerated and dewatered into fine particles. This is then treated with Bokashi Bran® to stop the food waste from rotting and causing unpleasant odours.

The food waste is then collected to be taken to a commercial composting facility for processing or composted on-site.
