The National Association for College and University Foodservice (NACUFS) hosted its National Conference last week in Denver, Colorado. Thousands of C&U foodservice professionals gathered in common pursuit of operational excellence. Leanpath was front and center as their trusted food waste prevention partner.
Leanpath has long been dedicated to scaling food waste prevention. This is reflected in our mission – to make food waste prevention and measurement everyday practice in the world’s kitchens.
IKEA West Chester, located 30 miles outside Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, has been using the Leanpath food waste prevention platform in its restaurant and bistro for a little over a year. The store measured an initial annualized food waste weight of 14,000 kilograms. By setting goals and keeping the team focused and trained, the store cut its food waste by 20 percent in one year. That translates to nearly 5,000 meals saved from the bin.
