The name Bioko reflects our purpose and ambition.
‘Bio’ lends itself to our natural biological process – we recycle organic material. And ‘Oko’ is reflective of our most prized asset – the black soldier fly (BSF). The BSF species is native to the Americas, and in some South American belief systems, Oko is revered as a deity of fertile agriculture.
The combination of these two roots form Bioko. A nutrient recycling company that balances science and technology with nature to create circular economy solutions for food waste, with the ultimate aim of bettering the planet’s agricultural systems.
Bioko is also the name of a biodiverse island off the west coast of Africa. This agriculturally rich land serves an inspiration for how both delicate and powerful natural systems can be. We believe the best technologies are those that are made with nature in mind; as these are the innovations that will lead us forward in repairing our planet for future generations.
