Another Forum Group Business Doesn’t Have to Go to Waste

The widely reported ‘Forum Group’ whose director allegedly de-frauded major banks of over 400 million dollars will have the inventory of its last major business offered to market this week. Iugis Pty Ltd was the brainchild of former director Bill Papas.

Iugis was set to be a leading Australian Company in the relatively new Sustainable Waste Industry. At the time of the company being placed into liquidation last year the inventory that will now go to auction this week had a landed cost of nearly 14 million dollars.

The Iugis commercial food waste digesters are billed as environmentally friendly, eco based and sustainable, being an innovative food waste solution contributing to a sustainable society and cost reductions making this an ideal business opportunity.

“These machines are perfect for large supermarket chains, hotels, clubs, hospitals, nursing homes, restaurants and any companies that need to safely dispose of their food waste. This is an incredible business opportunity as the stock required is landed and ready to go, a lot of the hard work and current import constraints have been bypassed.” said Mr. Lee Hames, Chief Operations Officer for Lloyds Auctions.

On offer is over 800 lots consisting of commercial food waste digesters, skip bins, electric motors and much more in a 4-part auction spanning across 2 days.  In addition to this offering, there are a number Surfacide Heolis Systems which will be coming to market shortly.

The technology mimics a natural digestion process using micro-organisms to transform food waste into an environmentally safe liquid.

The auctions are currently online with the bidding set to close on Wednesday 25th May and Thursday 26th May.
