Samoan hotel food waste recycled for organic compost

Food waste from hotels in Samoa is being recycled to produce compost for organic farms.

The pilot program completes the circle of food from the farms to hotel tables and then returning waste as compost to the farms.

It is being co-ordinated by Samoa's Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment, the United Nations Environment Programme, the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme and the Women in Business Development organisation.

Women in Business executive director Adimaimalaga Tafuna'i says the compost program was quick tracked ahead of the Small Islands Developing States Summit in Apia next month.
