About Hop Compost

Hop discovered the world’s top composting technology in New Zealand, and brought it to Canada to develop the country’s first inner-city compost facilities.

In both Vancouver and Calgary, Hop uses its facilities to operate high-efficiency urban waste collections, saving over 5 million pounds of food waste from landfill. Its technology converts this waste into the most nutrient-rich organic compost in Canada, to boost crop yields for organic growers.

All together, Hop enables a farm-to-table, table-to-farm food cycle to thrive.

We became a B Corp to validate our strengths and identify our shortcomings in a transparent manner. Sustainability is a devotion to progress.

The Change We Seek®

For years, sustainable food has been all about farm-to-table sourcing. The next leap for our food system is to complete the cycle table-to-farm.

Hop works to create this closed loop. It addresses the chemical growth and waste of food by embracing technology, saving food waste with high-efficiency collections, and nourishing organic crop yields with craft compost.

What makes us a better company?
