At Leanpath, tracking food waste on an hourly basis around the world, we’ve watched as COVID-19 has been felt across the global foodservice industry. As we’ve seen many operations forced to shut down abruptly, we’ve also seen an associated spike in food waste levels. We’ve had a unique vantage point from which to watch this set of adverse changes.
For some in the foodservice industry, part of the recovery from COVID-19 will involve filing insurance claims. Part of those claims may include coverage for food that had to be wasted as a result of the crisis. We wanted to give our clients a walk through on two ways to generate the relevant reports from your Leanpath data.

Sunday, March 22, is World Water Day, an annual observance organized by the United Nations.
We all know the importance of food in our daily lives – and at no time is that more important than in the virus-impacted world of today when our food supplies are being unexpectedly disrupted. So it is fitting that at this point in time we also reflect on our most precious natural resource – water – which makes the growth of our food possible.
As the situation around COVID-19 continues to evolve, many foodservice operations around the globe are experiencing impacts. With a focus on health and safety, operations are temporarily closing, adjusting hours to limited service, or changing service styles to remove self-service or buffets - anything to mitigate the chance of spreading the virus. Foodservice teams may be notified with short notice of these changes in an effort to further protect our communities.
