Food waste is a major focus area for us and we continue to integrate new solutions in the entire value chain. In 2017, we introduced Treatbox, a to-go box for guests. We also implemented a food waste-tracking app in our kitchens.
Instead of manually registering our food waste, we implemented an app dedicated to the purpose ‘Wise Up on Waste’, which makes registration and documentation much more convenient. Reductions in our amount of food waste quickly followed the implementation of the app. The daily digital reminders created noticeable changes in kitchen procedures, and our chefs now work together across business units to optimize and improve results.
This initiative has led to a re-evaluation of our actions within our entire food and beverage operations chain, from purchasing habits to plate preparation and much more.
