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.
During a lively 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 inventory management.
In five months using Leanpath, New Seasons Market's Central Kitchen has prevented over 46 thousand pounds of food from being wasted, a reduction of 22 percent in its waste. High staff engagement and strong data analysis has produced many positive changes in the team, and a new level of gratification to their work.
