The Easy and Clean Way to


All your Food Waste

Add Food Waste

All food waste can go into your bokashi composter. Fruit, vegetables, cooked food, meat, dairy, grains and pasta are all fine. If you eat it, it can go in the bin!

Mix In Bran

Next, sprinkle with our premium bokashi bran. Repeat until your bokashi bin is full. Then, seal the lid and leave for 2 weeks to complete the fermentation process.

Add to Garden

Your food scraps have now been transformed into microbe and nutrient-rich pre-compost, and are ready to add to your garden. You can bury directly in your garden beds, compost pile, potting containers, or soil factory.


In just two weeks the pre-compost will be assimilated into the soil web. Plant roots will thrive on the newly added bokashi microbes and food waste nutrients. Watch your garden flourish!

Bokashi composting helps me achieve a plastic bag free lifestyle. Now I no longer need plastic bags for my trash.

I really love the Bokashi system! I have emptied a couple buckets of fermented compost into my "regular" outside compost pile and was recently thrilled to find that for the first time in my life I have a "warm/hot" compost pile instead of just a wormy one.

My soil is very clay-like and has been difficult to grow in for years. I started bokashi 1 year ago, and as advertised my soil has steadily improved. This year my tomato plants have produced wonderfully, for the first time. Very satisfied!

Frida E


Neighbours from a few years ago had a 2 then 4-bin system going. She had a home-based company making prepared dishes, he liked to grow things in the garden, they matched perfectly. Their compost fortified the garden beds. The last year they were there, one of his zucchinis was over 2’ long, 5” wide (tasted so good) while just a single squash plant took over an entire bed — he built trellises for it to grow up and around… grew over 20 squashes! Bokashi living? Better than steroids — big AND flavour!

I bought my first bokashi compost in March this year and received it in April and I really really love it. We have reduced our food waste by 100%, we don't even take the compost out for the city to collect!

I've been using your bulk bokashi. Its working great for my Cuban oregano growing. My crops have better leaves and a better looking green to them. Thanks for a great product.



I bought the bokashi bins after seeing my friends garden respond amazingly well to it. She has rocky soil, and the bokashi really made a big difference for her.

Bokashi works awesome as a soil amender for medicinal cannabis.
