Started in Austin, Texas, GrubTubs Inc., rethinks food waste. We support family farms and sustainable cities across Texas by turning food waste into economical animal feed. GrubTubs collects food from restaurants before it turns into waste and uses it to help local farmers turn it into sustainable animal feed.
OUR GRUBS WANT YOUR GRUB #TABLETOFARM
HOW IT WORKS
Our process starts at the table and in the kitchen. Leftover food is collected and stored in our proprietary air-tight, sanitized tubs, allowing us to preserve nutrients for animal feed. We pick up tubs from restaurants and take them to the farm, where we employ a large team of hard working insect grubs to help us turn the food waste into nutrient rich food which chickens, pigs and fish all love to eat.
Restaurants love our service because it is easy, affordable, super clean and good for the community. Farmers love our service because it saves them thousands of dollars a month, plus it makes for healthy happy animals.
It's hard not to love a service that is more affordable than trash and helps reduce landfill waste by up to 75%.
GRUBTUBS USES RESTAURANT FOOD WASTE TO SUPPORT LOCAL FARMERS
Did you know that animal feed is the number one expense in agriculture? Feed costs are even higher than labor for American farmers. And even worse than the economic impact, current animal feed is environmentally unsustainable as it takes up around 70% of the farm acreage in the United States that could be used for other purposes.
American farmers prefer to grow food without chemicals and oil dependencies, but most of them can't completely commit to this practice because they are required to economically compete with global and multinational farming practices. As a result, most family farms have been sold for real estate development or foreclosed on by banks due to unprofitability and insurmountable debt.
What if the solution was just a simple integration between our cities and our farms?
