An increasing population with inefficient agricultural practice has cause food scarcity globally. The problem does not lie within the lack of productive land, but our current practices are degrading the surrounding environment.
In South Australia, upcycling of grape pomace has been implemented to create by-products for other industries albeit require state-of-the-art machinery and methods. By introducing black soldier fly (Hermetia illucens) larvae (BSFL), an environmental-friendly approach, it valorises the organic waste stream from the winemaking industry, which will be a nutritious feed source for both aquaculture and livestock industries.
Overall, it will be a potential solution that tackles the food scarcity problem, while minimising the waste stream from the winemaking industry.
