As a community-minded small business, sustainability and cost efficiency were top priorities for Paul’s SUPA IGA. After successfully implementing the enrich360® solution, they are now reducing waste, giving back to the community and saving money.


Food waste per week


Fertiliser created per week


Dehydrator model


Cycle time

Located in Melbourne’s outer east, Paul’s SUPA IGA offers the community a range of fresh fruit and vegetables and specialised food and liquor products in addition to standard supermarket lines.

A family business established in 1977 with a physical footprint of 1800sqm, today it derives its sales mainly from fresh produce, gourmet deli products, pre-prepared meals and bakery items.

Faced with increasing food waste of up to 1 tonne per week, Managing Director Arthur Corcoris saw the enrich360 program as a win-win opportunity, significantly reducing waste going to landfill while saving money on waste disposal. The end product - nutrient-rich fertiliser - is distributed to local gardeners and community gardens, and will soon supply Eastwood Primary School.

The addition of the enrich360® dehydrator to our supermarket has reduced our landfill waste by a third, helping the environment and reducing costs.
