The startup's aspiration is to upcycle about 1 million tons of food waste a year by about 2025.
Given that about 70 million tons of food is wasted in India annually, a million tons per year might not sound like a big deal, but I think it is significant - because this is the aspiration of just one startup, and within a few years of its inception.
Also, upcycling food waste is a more productive pathway compared to converting it to fertilizers or biogas. Most constituents of any biomass are worth much more than energy. The challenge lies in recovering this value.
