Food Waste Reduction
Data to Drive Change
Foodservice includes businesses, institutions, and schools, inclusive of restaurants, catering, cafeterias, and the hospitality sector. These businesses generate 12.7M tons of surplus food, more than 80% of which goes to landfill. Almost half of the total surplus is generated by full-service restaurants, and nearly three-quarters of the total surplus comes from plate waste, or customers not eating what they have taken or been served.
Foodservice is a challenging sector because of the diversity of models; restaurants, cafeterias, buffets, hotels, and other establishments all serve food to customers in similar but unique ways. However, behind the challenge lies a huge opportunity to first reduce waste in their own operations and then to choose a more environmentally compliant solution for the disposal of what can’t be reduced.
BioHiTech has a suite of solutions to tackle these complex problems.
We are committed to solutions that have a positive environmental impact.
REDUCED FOOD WASTE SAVES TIME AND MONEY
Smart Disposal Technology
BioHiTech’s onsite Digesters process food waste, using a combination of microorganisms, oxygen and water, into a grey water that safely discharges to the sanitary sewer line, eliminating traditional methods of waste hauling and disposal.
Data Analytics to Explain the Gaps
Accurate real-time information eliminates the uncertainty about where food waste occurs, how much is being wasted and its associated value.
Data Analytics to Prevent Waste
A waste tracking process forecasts accurate supply chain and inventory needs, standardizes best practices for production, and improves future planning.
Eliminated Transportation and Landfill Costs
An onsite solution eliminates the costs associated with the collection and hauling of waste to distant landfills.
Improved Handling and Storage of Waste
Many businesses lack sufficient space to store food waste for long periods of time and have a shortage of labor capacity to keep bins clean and rodent-free.
Alignment of Sustainability & Operational Goals
Customers with multiple locations and across many geographies share the same goals. BioHiTech’s cloud platform standardizes the data capturing process to align these collective goals.
Reshaping the Environment
Globally and collectively we need to be driving towards better food management, disposal compliance and ultimately less waste. BioHiTech offers innovative technology solutions that helps businesses to be less wasteful and to dispose of what can’t be reduced.
