Our journey starts with the most sustainable source of animal protein on the planet
Our superfood insects (hermetia illucens larvae) are higher in anti-oxidants and healthy fats than the finest free-range chicken, with a lower environmental impact than soya protein.
No fertiliser, no pesticides, no water pollution, no deforestation, no antibiotics.
So far, our customers have saved over
CO2 equivalent greenhouse emissions savings compared versus feeding an equivalent chicken based pet food
Let's see how Yora compares to other pet foods...
Feeding Yora saves around 9.5 tonnes CO2
What does that look like?
Driving an average petrol car 21,880 miles, that's nearly the length of the equator!
35,630 air miles! That’s equivalent to 40 ﬂights from London to Rome.
The carbon absorbed by 1,498 trees every year.
Our grubs fight food waste
Our grubs eat clean leftover fruit pulp and potato peelings from fruit juice and french fry factories - which they transform into healthy fats, amino acids and vitamins to store away in their little bodies.
When we've collected the grubs, the leftover organic waste has been turned into high quality fertilizer to grow more vegetables!
100% recyclable packaging
FOOD BAGS & TREAT POUCHES
Simply recycle them with your carrier bags and they can go on to serve another purpose!
Designed with sustainability in mind, using only FSC certified cardboard, Tetra Pak is widely recycled.
Even though Yora is more sustainable; cooking, packaging and transport still has an impact.
So we took the natural next step...
We offset our remaining emissions by protecting endangered natural habitats around the world
From the forests of Cambodia...
We work with two great associations. The first is The Southern Cardamom Rainforest Project, in Cambodia, which aims to protect the rainforest from illegal logging and poaching. This association avoids more than 3,000,000 tons of carbon emissions each year.
...to the lakes of Zimbabwe
We also support The Kariba Project in Zimbabwe. This community project aims to protect 785,000 hectares of forest, the natural habitat of many endangered or threatened species, on the shores of Lake Kariba.
