One third of all food produced for human consumption isn’t eaten, and the hospitality sector is an important contributor to food waste.

The Winnow System “smart meter” aims to tackle the problem by helping chefs measure and analyse the food they’re putting in the bin. They can use a tablet app to identify the types of food they’re throwing away, and, combined with data collected from an electronic scale, the smart meter can tell them the value of what’s being binned. It’s hoped that an accurate insight into what is being wasted – and the value of that waste – will prompt chefs to improve production processes.
