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!
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.
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!

George has spent the last 15 years in the waste and recycling industry developing zero-waste programs for both the private and public sector and has seen first-hand the valuable resources that can be diverted from the landfill. “Our landfills are above ground mines filling up with un-tapped resources ” He has lived several years in Japan, most recently at an organic farm where he learnt about the benefits of bokashi for soil building and organic farming.
