AgroThrive is built on the belief that all organic wastes can be converted to safe and nutritious organic fertilizers.
Dragan Macura (M. Sc.) founder and CEO, has taken his passion for food safety, organic integrity, and environmental stewardship to a professional level establishing AgroThrive Inc. in Salinas Valley, CA in 2006. Progressive Digestion Process (PDP), the main technology behind AgroThrive, is the scientific bridge between industrial food waste and liquid organic fertilizer in 21 days. PDP harnesses the digesting power of microbes in spoiled organic wastes, creates biological heat that eliminates all pathogens, and reduces reliance on chemicals in soil. Our organic ingredients include concentrated plant proteins, fish and seafood waste, and other nutrients. PDP has the unique ability to convert the most difficult to handle organic materials into beneficial organic fertilizers. Thus, PDP is an innovative technology closing the loop between food waste and food production. AgroThrive is used on both certified organic and conventional acreage. AgroThrive is proud to play a significant part in environmental stewardship. The quality of the food we eat is very important, and so is the impact we leave on the environment. That’s why our goal is to build a better world for us today and for our children and grandchildren tomorrow by reducing reliance on heavy chemical and pesticide use in agriculture. Our facility in Salinas Valley, CA is also completely solar-powered.

Our company started as part of iDecisionSciences(iDS), a Seattle-based consulting practice — whose principals first came to the produce food safety scene in 2006 following the outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 associated with spinach.
In the ensuing years, iDS worked closely with national and regional produce associations to develop food safety best practices and metrics for leafy greens as well as other major produce commodities. Out of this work, iFoodDecisionSciences, Inc. was launched to provide software solutions that produce companies need to manage the extensive data requirements of their food safety programs.
iFoodDecisionSciences (iFoodDS) was formed in 2013
