Hop Compost takes a big, smelly problem, and turns it into a business

Dave Kelly had the pleasure of sitting down with Kevin Davies, founder and CEO of Hop Compost, on this week’s episode of Village Radio.

Hop Compost provides urban compost services to restaurants and bars in Calgary and Vancouver, and has diverted upwards of 10 million pounds of food waste from landfills since its start in 2014. Tune in and hear why he got into the compost business and what his company is doing to change the way we dispose of waste and support local growers.
