Interview: Vivotein Co-Founder Will Sarat Chuchawat

Peter Johnson

The Ayadee Foundation is honored to have hosted Will Chuchawat, co-founder of Vivotein, with us for a live discussion of how his company turns food waste into feed. Not only does this make use of food waste, but it also replaces the demand for fishmeal and soybeans, and as part of the process they generate “frass” from the worms that can be used as fertilizer. There is no waste in their production process, and by re-using the food waste they ensure it will not turn into methane gas. Here’s an explainer video.

In this interview, not only do we discuss what this technology is, but we also discuss how it can be scaled to make an impact in other food related sectors, and in other regions and countries. In developed countries approximately 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of food waste is thrown away per year per person. Imagine the impact if we could scale Vivotein’s technology, or something similar, to reuse even a fraction of the food waste of developed countries.

In addition to being a leading innovator in reducing food waste through his creation of Vivotein, Will is also a leading M&A Advisor at one of the top global law firms, and has won a plethora of awards and honors for his work. Read his detailed bio here.
