A giant vision for a giant problem

Our Mission

Dropping waste in a big hole may have been a “solution” a hundred years ago, but that doesn’t cut it in our modern world. We think a solution should actually solve a problem, not pile onto it. Lookin’ at you, landfills.

Food waste was an afterthought then, and it’s even worse now! Changin’ times call for changin’ ways, and we’re giant advocates for taking food waste from out of sight, out of mind to in-sight and ON the mind.
Why? Because we can’t afford to keep sweeping this under the rug.

Hungry Giant solutions use new technologies that turn food waste into a useful, useable, reusable resource. Imagine a world full of waste that’s anything but wasteful. Sounds like paradise to us.

So, let’s get food waste out of the trash and into the future.
Let’s feed it to the Giants and feed the Earth!

The Hungry Giant Family

The Founder's Story

Chris O’Brien is the Chief Executive Officer of Hungry Giant and a member of the management committee. Prior to serving in his current roles, Chris invented products and created companies in the waste management industry in his native Australia. After selling his waste management services business in 2017, Chris moved to Austin with his wife and daughters to attack waste in a new, bigger market. 

He never stops contemplating ways to improve waste management systems and has created, developed, and improved products from Styrofoam recycling equipment to IoT solutions for managing waste hauling contractors.
