By saving food scraps from landfill and transforming it into Canada’s highest-nutrient organic compost, Hop uses waste to catalyze the next generation of farmland growth.

Hop extends the farm-to-table movement with a closed loop that returns food scraps from table-to-farm. Within this regenerative food cycle, Hop’s unique compost collection service enables food merchants to reach zero-waste. Hop’s craft compost product is an organic alternative to poisonous fertilizer, so healthy, one can eat it without issue.
