Kevin Davies

Founder & CEO, Hop Compost

Since creating Canada’s first inner-city compost facility in February 2015 and pioneering a closed loop around it, Kevin and Hop have saved 2.5 million pounds of food waste from landfill, and crafted the most nutrient-rich compost in Canada to boost organic crop yields. And it works! Hop’s first delivery of its signature organic compost went to Grow Calgary, the largest urban farm in Canada, which announced its crop yields were rising so much, it expected to donate 1,125 more meals to the Calgary Food Bank over its next 12 months. Hop now supplies the majority of urban farmlands in Calgary.
