Today is World Food Day – a day that we take to heart at Leanpath. Coming on the heels of Climate Week in New York City, where we spent several days engaged in energizing sessions on how to positively change the global food system with numerous partners and thought leaders from organizations such as the World Resources Institute and Champions 12.3, The Barilla Center for Food and Nutrition (BCFN), and the Future Food Institute, we’re even more energized by the importance of this day.
We’re excited to announce that Leanpath just closed $7m in growth funding to accelerate our mission of making food waste prevention and measurement everyday practice in the world’s kitchens.
Leanpath CEO Andrew Shakman was honored Thursday night with the Special Achievement Award at the 2019 Waste2Zero gala in London.
One of the best tools to prevent food waste is your menu, and deliberately integrating repurposing into the menu to ensure food is reutilized rather than wasted. In a webinar hosted by Leanpath Executive Chef Robb White, Sodexo chefs from the healthcare, corporate dining and universities segments shared their best practices in reducing food waste through inventory and menu management and staff engagement. Today, we’ll review the discussion on menu planning.
In a first for a global foodservice company, Sodexo has tied its financing to its performance in preventing food waste. The company announced yesterday it renewed its €1.3 billion revolving credit facility, which now incorporates a pricing adjustment based on Sodexo's performance towards its goal to prevent 50% of the food waste and food losses from its operations by 2025.
