Why Faithful to Nature loves it:
Earth Probiotic Earth Bokashi can be added to food waste to begin the fermentation process making food suitable for composting. Once you have collected a large enough amount of food scraps place it in the Bokashi Recycling Bin & sprinkle a layer of Earth Bokashi into the bin. Once the bin is full, leave it to ferment then add to your compost heap, earthworm farm, & flower pots. Minimize your weekly waste & say goodbye to smelly bins with Earth Probiotic Earth Bokashi!

Our strict ingredient policy means that you can always shop according to your values. Every item on FtN is checked to be better for the environment, socially responsible, good for you and free from toxic ingredients.
  • Ferment & then safely compost food waste
  • Microorganism ferment food much like pickling
  • Contains a balanced mix of nitrogen and carbon-rich material
  • Wonderful ability to eliminate odor
  • Use with a large airtight container
  • Partners perfectly with Bokashi Recycling Bin
  • This can be used to ferment raw & cooked food, dairy, small bones, citrus, eggshells, seafood, & meat.
  • 2kg bags are 100% compostable
  • Made in South Africa


  • Add food waste* between layers of Earth Bokashi in the recycling bin.
  • Microbes in the Earth Bokashi start a fermentation process.
  • Once this process is complete, empty the bin into a compost heap, bury it under the soil, feed to earthworms, or make soil.
  • After you have collected & fermented your food you can use it to add nutrients, minerals and microorganisms to your soil.
  • *This includes raw & cooked food, dairy, small bones, citrus, eggshells, seafood, & meat!

How does it work?

  • Earth Bokashi is full of beneficial microorganisms that help to ferment food scraps; the process is anaerobic (it takes place without air), breaking down your kitchen waste into nutrient-rich soil food without letting it rot or releasing a bad odour. When your scraps have been fermented, you can then add the end product to your flower pots, compost heap or worm bin where it will then be exposed to air and small animals (worms & insects) and become compost. This is such a simple way to make your household more sustainable, and use your kitchen waste in an eco-friendly way.

Please Note: Once the recycle bin is full, it will need to stand unopened for 2 weeks to complete the fermentation process. Ideally, your kitchen should have 2, Earth Probiotic Bokashi Recycling Bin for Food Waste so you can use one while the other is left to stand.

Did you know?

  • Bokashi is a Japanese word that means "fermented organic matter."
  • For those of you who love to compost or have your own earthworm farm, you’ll know that certain food (namely bread, cooked food, citrus & meat) don’t work very well in these environments. Earth Bokashi is a great step to take before composting as the fermentation process makes these foods compatible with worm farms & compost heaps!
  • The bokashi juice can be used as a soil drench and is diluted 1:300 (water: juice).
  • The liquid is very acidic, hence the high dilution rate.


  • Nett Weight: 2 kg.


  • 100% recyclable paper.

Country of Origin:

  • Proudly South Africa.

This definitely assists in keeping any bad odours away when opening the waste bucket.

Fantastic how it works. Generates Tea and composts well
22/02/2022, By Ceciel
I'm so amazed how this product keeps my compost odor and bug free
06/08/2021, By Mel
Absolutely love this. I'm a bit 'heavy handed' but one bag still lasted for 4 full 25L buckets of food waste. Hubby was skeptical at first and thought the kitchen would smell bad, but the bran takes the stink away so no nasty odors when you open the bucket.

My garden loves it!

Great product for people who believe in reuse and recycle.
I have been using this product from the time I started my journey of composting kitchen waste.

10/05/2021, By Evlyn
I open my first bokashi bin on Sunday and feel like a kid in a candy shop.
I think the concept is fantastic.
09/04/2021, By Nastassia

19/02/2021, By Piet
Great for composting everything
18/02/2021, By Sarah
Great product - completely removes the smell from food waste so you can keep it in the kitchen while it is decomposing
05/02/2021, By barefoot
This stuff lasts and lasts! I was worried about having to bran that costs almost as much as the Bokashi itself, but it's been over a year and I'm still on the same bag. You seriously only need a small scoop at a time. I can't recommend this system enough.
03/02/2021, By Charne
Just getting going but loving the results so far
01/02/2021, By Kate
I have been using Bokashi for about 5 years now and I'm thrilled to see that Earth Probiotic has switched to eco-friendly packaging. Well done guys!

At first I was concerned about the plastic packaging, but it seems that has been replaced with paper packaging, WHICH IS GREAT!! I've been composting with this method for about a year and is so impressed with it!

Works great!
13/08/2020, By Bernadette
I have been using this product for over a year now and will keep on buying it. Making my own compast has never been so easy with this product. Love the earthy smell of it and my plants are flourishing due to the enriched soil.
10/08/2020, By Pippa
Love it, also comes in a brown paper bag which is great for recycling!

Works so well with my Bokashi bin - and you only have to use a handful each time! There’s no smell - and it works absolute wonders!
24/07/2020, By Megan
You don’t have to use a lot of this product to get the desired effect. Works well with the Bokashi bucket and gets the composting process started !
16/07/2020, By Ann
I am very impressed with the bokashi bran. No smell from the bokashi bin with all our peels, egg shells and small bones taken care of. It also lasts much longer than I expected. What a great and easy way of living less wasteful.
26/06/2020, By Abi
Works great, no smell when disposing of your old food.

Big bag
28/05/2020, By Rock
Works well in the bucket
23/05/2020, By Joni
Works really well with the Bokashi Bin. No flies or smell when the bin is sealed closed.
20/05/2020, By TVR
I'd been using this for over a year and I tried another brand just out of curiosity, and returned to this one straight after. It's far better in my opinion, and lasts a lot longer. I really love that they've updated the packaging too. Eco win!
18/05/2020, By Shannon
Love the brown bag packaging that the bran now comes in.
18/05/2020, By Tania
Thanks for getting rid of your normal plastic bag and replacing it with a sturdy brown bag which we can use on the compost heap. Great product. Keep up the work.
14/05/2020, By Victoria
Won't go with any other brand besides Earth Probiotic!
09/05/2020, By Real
Nice kitchen solution
01/05/2020, By Marie
Can't believe how well this stuff keeps food waste from smelling! One bag lasts us 4 months using it in a 25L bokashi bin.
28/04/2020, By Cornelia
Proper gardening
27/04/2020, By Candy
Good gardening
22/04/2020, By Donnae
22/04/2020, By Dee
Still the best! We've tried other brands and none of them quite measure up.
19/04/2020, By Cath
Much prefer this to the spray
07/04/2020, By Lisa
We've been using the Bokashi for about 4 months now and we are only running out of this bag now! Thank you for making this an essential item (though I'm already stocked up, but thank you!)
04/04/2020, By Blue
So nice
28/03/2020, By Green
15/03/2020, By Jodie
It requires a lot of the product to minimize smell and to get the waste to break down in comparison to other brands but otherwise, it's fine
28/02/2020, By pixie-k
Perfect to use with the Bokashi recycling bins.
29/01/2020, By RaynieJ
Absolutely love my bokashi bin. I find this bran lasts really long, our she’s been going for a good few months now.
27/01/2020, By Bubu
No more mould nor smell
22/01/2020, By Tara
Just started using this product and so far really happy. Hardly any smells and I have put fish in my compost bin already ????
14/01/2020, By Support
26/12/2019, By Penny
I am new at using this bran but not new to composting. Am very impressed with it. Simplifies whole process.
14/12/2019, By Lara
Second time purchase, this bokashi blend is ferfect fro home composting along with the bin and bokashi composting bag, no need to burry the anything now
21/11/2019, By Bella
Its a very good product - no smell or hassle to use it. One bag lasted me for about three 25L bins. I agree that a no-plasic packaging and resealable options will just add to the pleasure I am already experiencing with this product.
19/11/2019, By Tanya
Have my Bokashi bin handy in my kitchen and will have it no other way now. Just a pity the large bag of Bokashi bran is not resealable like some other makes I've tried.
20/10/2019, By Cindy
A great product, just wish it came in a paper bag like other brands in FTN. Lasts a long time.
14/10/2019, By Liebe
This is a good product that adds to wholesome living. We are able to recycle almost everything! The Earth Probiotic Earth Bokashi allows us to repurpose our peels, shells, grounds, any other organic material that has not yet been processed. It is wonderful!
09/10/2019, By Julia
Getting the hang of composting and this product is great
29/09/2019, By Bokuka
Doesn’t make waste smell at all, just follow the instructions and it’s a wonderful add on to the same brand 25l compost bucket
19/09/2019, By Bernie
Loving this system of composting. have been composting for about a year and had lots of mishaps like maggots and flies and rotting food being forgotten etc but this system is so easy and user friendly. recommend to anyone who loves to compost their waste.
12/09/2019, By Joy
So great that it stops organic waste from smelling and can use compost in the garden after such a short time!
09/09/2019, By Xanthe
Great product
02/09/2019, By Tegan
One bag goes a long way. I use approximately one per full bucket of compost. There's no foul odour and the entire composting process is so much easier than I thought. Love it.
26/07/2019, By Christy
You have to have this for your Bokashi bin and it’s great because you only use a small handful at a time and it has such a neutral almost fresh smell! Definitely recommend getting the bin and the bran! You won’t regret!
26/07/2019, By Sue
Been using Bokashi bran for years.
Keeps the compost pile healthy and as a plus, I sprinkle it over my cat scat as it neutrolises harmful pathogens
23/07/2019, By Adele
It's certainly not the most glamorous task, but using the Bokashi System has certainly made green living more tangible and growing my own herbs, edible flowers and veggies more successful.
22/07/2019, By "Go Organic"
The Earth Bokashi Bran is the "magic Ninja" which is added into our Bokashi Composting Bins!
27/06/2019, By Nicolette
I've been using this for a while now and I love how this is contributing to have my kitchen clean smelling - no flies, no pests - just awesome!
I recommended this to my friend too and she loves it as much as I do.
21/06/2019, By Tayla
Really wonderful for composting. Breaks down organic waste in about two weeks - so much faster than conventional composting.
12/06/2019, By Nicolette
So I got myself the bin and it's almost full. I love this stuff! Clean and green goodness for mother earth. We must all do our part to put back the good stuff into the ground that feeds us.
30/05/2019, By FerrisBueller
When used correctly, there is no odour from the "waste".
13/05/2019, By Shez
Very good product
15/04/2019, By Andrea
Works as it should, just make sure you are not shy with how much you use!
10/04/2019, By Sian
It blows my mind how effective this is - it breaks down food waste very very quickly. No smells.
01/03/2019, By Stella
A must have if you've got a bokashi on the go.
26/02/2019, By Zsuz
Easy to use, it lasts for a while and no smells.
26/02/2019, By Gill
So easy to use. Such a little goes a long way. Was worried I would run out quickly but that isn’t the case.
31/01/2019, By Susan
I'm excited to join the Bokashi family and look forward to a much happier, healthier garden!
24/01/2019, By Eunice
I love the fact that this method allows composing of a wide variety of food scraps. The bran works really well and a little goes a long way.
22/12/2018, By Ru
Works like a charm! I've been doing the Bokashi-thing for two years now and it is such an easy effortless way to turn food scraps into compost. No more waste food in landfills!
12/12/2018, By Chrissy
This stuff really works and there's no smell flies, etc...
01/12/2018, By AEN
Perfect solution for speeding up composting at home
28/11/2018, By Twi
Not a very easy system to use. Takes a lot longer than advertised. I have two bins of kitchen waste and am not sure what to do with them. Other reviews say they bury the waste in a garden/veg patch. What if you don't have one? Where do you put it?
26/11/2018, By Elizna
I have two bins for when the one is sealed for the two weeks before adding to my compost bag. Works perfectly, no bad smells. And I am making my own compost. Great products from Earth Probiotic. Easy to use as well.
26/11/2018, By Paloma
I love this product and keep on buying it all the time. It takes the smell away from my composting bin and goes a long way. I even put it in the small bin. Brilliant product.
17/11/2018, By Anel
The Bokashi system works really well, and I ended up getting it rather than a worm farm (not that those can't work together) or another composting system, as this allows me to also get rid of bones, onion scraps, etc which normal composting systems can't take. I'm very happy with this type of Bokashi wheat bran - a nice big packet that stores and dispenses easily.
16/11/2018, By Barbara
Really works
09/11/2018, By Kate
I love my Bokashi system. The activated wheat bran breaks down food scraps and then I feed the mixture to my worms. The food mixture is partially broken down already so the worms digest it quickly, making "black gold" beautiful nutrient rich compost in a matter of weeks. A stress free way to turn kitchen waste into compost!
06/11/2018, By Megz
Love this product speeds up the process and leaves no odors.
25/10/2018, By Lola
My bro loves to use this
18/10/2018, By Juanita
I am happy with the product itself. I use it to help along the composting process in my large outdoor composting bin. The only thing I am not fond of is the thick single-use plastic packaging.
17/10/2018, By Melissa
We have been using the Bokashi system for just over a month and it has greatly reduced our waste to landfill, I especially love the fact that meat and bones can also be fermented. No bad smells and we have already started treating our garden with the tea. Patiently awaiting our first batch of compost.
13/10/2018, By Cindy
Purchased this bran with the big bucket about 2 weeks ago. Love the fact that I can do my better bit for the environment.
05/10/2018, By Ru
I've made quite a few batches of compost with this product. It works great!
30/09/2018, By Wendy
Have made mounds of wonderful compost with the Bokashi bins and bran. It is great to use all your scraps, peels and , stale bread instead of sending them to landfill. The bran keeps everything smelling nice while it breaks down the food.
28/09/2018, By Les
I recently purchased this little wonder and am so pleased with it. It was a toss up between the outdoor compost tub or this one and am very glad I chose the Bokashi. Fits nicely in my tiny kitchen and already has produced ‘tea’ for my plants. No smell at all as it seals well and is so easy to use. I would recommend this to everyone. Just remember to order the bran when you order the composter.
26/06/2018, By Adél
I prefer this over the Bokashi spray. It takes away any odour and it's nice that it covers the food scraps, so when you return the next day you don't have to see the previous day's scraps.
I wish they would, however, package this in something that is not plastic. I don't want to buy the tub every time, so it would be great if this can come in plant plastic or something else that can biodegrade as well.
19/03/2018, By Julie
My favourite one on the market because it is made with sawdust and has a nice smell
23/05/2017, By Fatima
Great product, it works, there are no overpowering odors, the bran makes fermenting organic waste smell sweet.
03/11/2015, By Nikodemis
I love the bokashi indoor kitchen waste composter bin and the bran that goes with it. This is one of the best things thats hit the market since sliced bread - and u can even compost the sliced (or toasted or cheesed or buttered or burnt) version of the toast in this as well :) . I have been recycling and repurposing my various recycleables from home for many a year, and my garden birds have been getting their share from the kitchen too. I also make compost by my veggie garden but being a smallish suburban garden next to a public park, all these processes attract rats and smells. And of course not much of my kitchen waste went to my compost either. However, with the Bokashi indoor composter my wildest expectations were surpassed. No odors, just a pleasure - no more left over cooked foods to fowl my municipal dustbin or pollute the land fills or set gases free to do more damage to the fragile ecosystems. And the compost tea makes magic happen to my potted herbs et al. I love it! But do be mindful that u have to have two of these bins so one is used when the other is full and pickling away for a closed up 2 weeks before being buried in the garden. I got so inspired I even built my own 2nd bucket. And know that u use at least one good solid full handful of bran per layer of compost.

Hi there M. Paloma Werner

We are so glad that you enjoyed our product.

The only reason why you would have flies in the small collecting container is if it isn closed properly. Just make sure that you have the lid on securely to deter any critters.

Thank you very much for choosing Earth Probiotic Recycling Solutions for your food waste recycling needs! Continue feeding the soil and not landfills.
20/03/2015, By M. Paloma Werner
I love my compost bin and think the bran is fantastic. The bran keeps the flies away and the bin does not smell when I open it to put additional cut-offs in. Just struggeling a little with the black small bin in the kitchen with the food flies and hope winter will help. Does anybody know if the stainless steel bin is better?
