Last week we took part in the Food & Hotel Myanmar expo in Yangon, a huge event with hundreds of chefs vying to be the best. The hotels, restaurants and resorts of Myanmar were gathered in the huge venue to soak up the inspiration…

Exciting new projects and a new bokashi yard!

JANUARY 2019 Read about our project so far, it’s interesting! The November update here, October here, the September one here, and the back story here. Our mantra is that organic waste IS. NOT. TRASH.  Every day it gets clearer to us just how important…
