Sustainability leader Diversey and technology pioneer Winnow announced their partnership to fight food waste in the Indian hospitality sector.

It is a significant challenge for the country, where 67 million tonne of food is wasted annually That is up to 40 per cent of all the food produced.

It is also a huge cost for the economy, costing businesses and consumers Rs 92,000 crore every year.

Winnow’s ground-breaking technology connects the kitchen to the cloud, giving chefs analytics to pinpoint where food is being wasted.

Food waste is an age-old problem for the hospitality sector, with hotels and restaurants typically wasting between five and 15 per cent of food purchased.

Through their partnership with Diversey, the technology will be made available at scale to the Indian hospitality market for the first time.

Already contracted with over 1,000 sites, Winnow users, including big brands like IKEA, Compass Group and Accor Hotels, typically see food waste cut in half within 12 months.

Marc Zornes, chief executive officer and co-founder, Winnow, said, “Diversey are market leaders in the sustainability space, and we are thrilled to be working with their team in India to bring our technology to even more kitchens.”

“Food waste is a serious issue, but also a huge opportunity for the hospitality sector to cut costs while doing the right thing for the environment at the same time. We are excited about the impact that we will have together as we scale up our partnership in 2018,” he added.

Brijesh Rathore, business leader, Diversey India said, “As a business, we are focused on digital solutions and game-changing approaches like the Internet of Clean.”
