ABOUT NUTRI HUMUS

Nutri Humus is based in Cape Town, South Africa. The company operates world-class organic waste processing and composting facilities. Established in 2018, Nutri Humus is an innovative and rapidly growing composting company. 

 

Nutri means to feed or to nourish, 

and Humus is the Latin word for “earth” or “ground”. 

Nutri Humus literally means to feed the soil, or to nourish the earth.

 

Humus is the dark organic matter in soil, formed by the decomposition of plant and animal matter. Humus is rich in nutrients; it retains moisture, and it supports beneficial microorganisms. These qualities are vital for improving soil health and they are a vital resource to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel-based fertilizers and plant pest controls, which have a detrimental impact on the environment. 

OUR MISSION

Our Mission is to be an industry leader in organic waste beneficiation and the production of soil improvement products.

OUR VISION

Nutri Humus’ Vision is to re-establish Humus as the preferred material to be used for soil enrichment.

Humus the Latin word for “soil” or “ground” and it is the dark organic matter in soil that is formed by the decomposition of plant and animal matter.

Humus provides beneficial qualities to growing media, and it provides nutrients and beneficial organisms that are essential to soil and plant health.

We care about the planet

When organic waste is sent to landfill, it can generate greenhouse gases and produce a liquid ooze called leachate. Leachate can contaminate water resources and greenhouse gasses contribute toward climate change. Processing organic waste by means of aerobic composting helps avoid these negative impacts. It even has a beneficial impact on the environment.
