Turning organic waste into fertilizer in just 24 hours with cutting-edge compost machines
MAEKO, is the brainchild of three passionate individuals focused on solving one of the biggest problems facing our planet - the Food Waste issue. Every day, huge amounts of food scraps (or even full meals!) are being wasted in Malaysia, taking up space in landfills and poisoning our Earth. The founders of MAEKO knew there was a simple solution - composting. Combining their expertise from the fields of biotechnology, mechanical engineering and marketing, MAEKO was born with the singular intent of helping the country - and the world - achieve ZERO FOOD WASTE. After close to a decade of research and development, MAEKO is proud to have created the most cutting-edge composting technology in the ASEAN region. MAEKO's food waste composting machines are fully contained "All-in-One" commercial on-site composting machines that can reduce food waste volume by up to 80% in 24 hours. Their patented technology has been applied in their comprehensive range of composters for use in any industry that produces food waste.
