Kilang ReRoot aims to tackle food waste using the three pillars of sustainability: reducing food
waste (environment) by involving multiple sectors of the Bruneian community (society) and
creating opportunities for local businesses through food upcycling projects (economy). The pilot
project focuses on efficient management in every stage of the food cycle, emphasising on waste
recovery to prevent food waste from being dumped in landfills. Project plan begins from the
grassroot level by raising awareness, introducing new ways to adapt to a zero-waste lifestyle,
continuous engagement with the public, and eventually building a community that strives
towards sustainable and zero-waste living.
Kilang ReRoot has a vision of building a dynamic and innovative community in
minimising food waste, upcycling food produce into new products, and adopting sustainable
practices in our daily lives thus, striving towards a zero waste and healthy green lifestyle. In
order to do this, its mission is to promote eco-friendly local products for sustainable living in
Brunei Darussalam by becoming environmentally conscious of food production, packaging,
consumption and waste recovery. The project will primarily focus on fresh produce such as fruits
and vegetables. Kilang ReRoot will be collaborating with small local businesses to promote
eco-products and eco-living lifestyle to build a zero waste community together.
Kilang ReRoot aims to tackle food waste that is lost and wasted between agricultural
fields and consumer levels by focusing on three principles of sustainability: economy, society
and environment. It hopes to cultivate food waste into new usable products and avoid food loss
into landfills that affect the ecosystem.
