Food in perfectly good condition is left at the green markets and store shelves, so reducing the food loses before it becomes waste, should be a priority to all of us. But, when this fails, we offer an innovative solution.

MamaOrgana is formed to collect food waste and by processing it to create value.
Instead of creating costs and polluting the environment, we create organic fertilizers, which are helping farmers and urban gardeners in growing healthy and clean, pesticide-free food.
By selling the fertilizers, we create profit and provide jobs for single parents.
Recently in our product portfolio, we've added ECO Cat litter, greener and cheaper alternative for the silicon litters offered at the market. It is the first product of its kind in the region, with antibacterial properties and biodegradable.
We have an innovative social-business model, in which 8 out of 17 sustainability goals included in Europe 2020 policy are tackled and because of this, although we exist only one year we already gained support from few accelerators in making the business model and a few awards for it.
Currently, we are in the scale-up stage and looking for an investment. Our next step would be expanding at the EU market and these funds will be used to expand the production capacity and obtain all the needed licenses.
