{{monthName}} {{day}}, {{year}} Led by Saket Dave and Krishnan Kasturirangan, Wastelink solves the problem of commercial food waste by creating a circular economy solution that upcycles food surplus to animal feed. 0 CLAPS 0 India is one of the worst performers on the global hunger index, ranking 101 out of 116 countries in 2021. Yet, a lot of food gets wasted in food manufacturing, restaurants and events such as marriages and parties. According to the UNEP Food Waste Index Report 2021, Indian households generate 50 kg per capita per year, which amounts to a total of 69 million metric tons a year. Food waste also directly contributes to climate change . It creates greenhouse gases when dumped in landfills or burned down, accounting for 10 percent of the total emissions. To solve the country’s food waste problem, Saket Dave launched Wastelink in 2018. He was joined by Krishnan Kasturirangan, the first investor in the company, as a co-founder in the later part of 2020.

In the last two years, the startup, which collects food waste from over 700+ locations across India, spanning 50+ cities, claims to have upcycled over 5,000 metric tons of food waste, preventing over 11,000 metric tons in greenhouse gas emissions. The journey Saket has been involved in waste management for the last 11 years. His passion goes back to college when he started a youth climate organisation with over 70 volunteers. He was awarded International Climate Champion for India by the British Council in 2011, and Indian youth Delegate to UN Climate Change Conference in South Africa in 2011, in which he was selected among 17 people globally at the age of 19. This inspired him to purse his passion in sustainability and set the stage for the idea behind Wastelink. Get connected to Wastelink Speaking about its ideation, Saket says, “A massive amount of resources go into producing each ounce of food, of which a huge chunk (approximately one-third) goes unutilised. We saw the potential that food waste upcycling industry has, and wanted to find a viable solution to keep this food waste within the chain by upcycling it into high-protein animal feed, thereby making sure that valuable resources find a way to get consumed.” With a team of 30 members, Saket takes care of the nutrition science that converts food to feed, processing operations, and sales to feed manufacturers. Krishnan takes care of business development with food waste suppliers and logistics. Stay Updated
