Food waste is a huge issue and impacts industries working with fresh produce both in cost as well as operational CO2 footprint. “Over 1.6 billion tonnes of food are wasted globally each year. Hotel kitchens alone throw away 25% of all the food they purchase. Not only does it feel wrong that we are wasting food while knowing there are people starving in the world, the food waste also contributes to another problem – global warming. In fact, 11% of all greenhouse gas emitted comes from the food we are wasting”, states Lumitics on their purpose to reduce food waste. Both governments and sector stakeholder have been making it a top priority of finding innovations to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and so has Diversey. Bringing a program that helps curb food waste and make commitments that success bring value to the sustainability programs we offer in lodging, but also in the food service industry.
