Product overview

Transform your food waste into nutrient-rich organic compost with Zing Bokashi's sustainable & efficient composting system!

Zing Bokashi’s composting system ferments your kitchen waste within a mere 4 weeks, using an easy and cost-effective process. Compost Zing is a unique New Zealand made product created to transform food waste into organic nutrient rich soil conditioner. It contains plant by-products and beneficial microbes for eco-conscious composting & gardening.

It only takes a few simple steps to use your Bokashi system. The built in grate system is designed for seamless drainage, channelling compost liquids into the lower portion of the bucket - featuring a handy tap - and sealed by an airtight lid. Simply pop your waste in the bucket, sprinkle the supplied Compost Zing ( 1 tablespoon per 2L of waste) over the top of the fresh waste layer, close the bucket & let it work its magic!

The “liquid gold” that collects in your lower bucket must be drained regularly, every 2-3 days, during the fermentation process using the tap. This juice contains nutrients from the food waste and is alive with beneficial microbes, so can be used to fertilise your garden or plants - it is best used the day you collect it. Just dilute the juice, 2 Tbsp to 5 litres of water and apply to the soil. For foliage dilute the juice , 1 tsp to 5 litres of water and spray over the leaves.

This composting kit includes a 1kg bag of Compost Zing and a composting guide to kickstart your composting journey. Once you have the composting unit, you only need to buy replacement bags of Compost Zing to maintain the fermentation process.

What is Bokashi?
Bokashi is a process that converts food waste and similar organic matter into a soil amendment which adds nutrients and improves soil texture. It differs from traditional composting methods in several respects. The most important being; the waste is fermented by bacteria, not decomposed. This particular technique first became popular in Japan in the 1980s, when Dr. Teruo Higa began promoting his combination of effective microorganisms for Bokashi, but the process of fermenting organic waste for composting has been practiced across Asia for centuries.

Zing Bokashi Composter

Really easy way to compost your kitchen waste. My hubby doesn't like having a compost bin as even though we don't put meat in you still get rats eating the tiger worms. So this little beauty has solved my problem as I Iove to home compost and this has the advantage that you can put your meat and fish waste in it. Have had it a month now and just put out my first bucket full in a trench in the rose garden. Roses look like they are enjoying the extra boost. Bonus extra is the bokashi juice which is excellent by product and really does give your veggie/garden plants a boost.
