Working in thousands of kitchens in over 30 countries, with foodservice clients large and small, Leanpath is now preventing food waste globally at a rate of 1 pound every 2 seconds, or 1 kilo every 4 seconds.

Leanpath is on a mission to make food waste measurement and prevention everyday practice in the world’s kitchens. Just last October, our cumulative waste prevention figure stood at 1 pound every 3 seconds. Because of our growth and the commitment to food waste prevention from front line foodservice workers using Leanpath around the world, that rate has now increased and we are reaching our mission faster every day.

“Front line foodservice workers are the global change makers in the fight against food waste,” said Leanpath CEO Andrew Shakman. “Everyday--every second in fact--they prevent food waste, they are making a difference for their operations and for the planet. We’re proud to be a part of that effort.”

When a kitchen prevents 1 pound of food waste, that’s a pound of food that didn’t have to be purchased, didn’t have to be prepped. Food waste directly impacts labor and margins.

When a kitchen prevents 1 pound of food waste, that’s a pound of food that didn’t have to be grown, stored, shipped. That translates to about 1 pound of CO2 emissions kept from entering the atmosphere.

When a kitchen prevents 1 pound of food waste, it frees resources that can be better directed to addressing root causes of hunger.

Food waste is a crisis, but also an opportunity. Leanpath is dedicated to helping kitchens around the world positively impact their margins and the planet by preventing food waste.
