CEO & Co-Founder of Bardee, Phoebe Gardner is transforming the agriculture sector by using insects to transform food waste into high-quality protein for animal feed and rich organic fertiliser. Every tonne of protein produced by Bardee offsets 100 tonnes of C02 emissions, equivalent to planting 1,600 trees. In 2019, Phoebe was awarded the Emerging Leader in Agriculture Award by the Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria. Come along to Binary Shift to hear how Bardee is using innovation to revolutionize the agriculture industry, and the future of farming insects as a sustainable source of protein.
