Did You Know In the United States, Food Waste Is Estimated To Be 30-40% of Food Supply?
According to the FDA, wasted food is the single largest category of material placed in municipal landfills. Wasted food is a growing problem and presents an untapped opportunity. Apart from environmental impact, the conversion to sustainable products and food packaging has been an influence of consumer demand. According to a 2018 survey, 2 out of 3 consumers are willing to spend more money for eco-friendly products. In response, corporations in the food service industry have taken upon active roles in sustainability leadership to lower costs and carbon-footprint. Composting has been utilized as a solution to excessive garbage waste, turning wasted food and biodegrade-able products into energy.
What Is Compost?
Compost is the natural process of food waste decomposing; Recycled organic waste and food matter becoming soil conditioner. Instead of having your consumers or staff throw away their food in a single trash bin, direct them to throw their waste in the individualized barrels dedicated to the waste's destination. Accumulate more compost by incorporating compostable products into your dining and carry-out experience. This makes throwing away items easier and with less mistakes. Consider compost as earth food. If everything you serve your consumers can later become fertilizer, then there goes the guilt of using an overhaul of products that may end up as pollution.
