Wise up on Waste is a convenient tool for professional kitchens to monitor and track food waste to help operators identify when and where the most food waste is being generated and where they can save money.
By simply sorting your waste bins into spoilage (unusable stock), preparation (generated as part of the cooking process) and customer plate waste (returned on plate from guests) and weighing them at the end of each service (breakfast, lunch and/or dinner). The weights you enter over a three day audit period will enable the app to tell you your average waste generated per day, per cover, per service period.
The app will identify where you are generating more waste than the industry average and how much money you could save per week by reducing your waste by 20%.
