Hop uses patented technology to build inner-city compost facilities. Using these central facilities, Hop collects food waste from local restaurants, and processes it into Canada’s most nutrient-rich organic compost for local growers. With operations in Calgary and Vancouver, Hop has now saved over 8 million pounds of waste and 10 million pounds of emissions. Currently, the company is growing at a rate of 10% every month, and opening in new cities. We are a certified B Corp, and believe in the power of business and technology to solve pressing sustainability issues.
The Edmonton Facility
Hop is initially opening in Edmonton as a specialty food waste hauling operation, and waste will be diverted to a third-party partner facility. In due time, Hop will open its own local compost facility to process this food waste into Hop’s signature organic product. For now, we will focus on saving 2 million pounds of waste in 2018 that are currently destined for landfill.
