Not every food manufacturer collects enough data about how much food waste takes place in the production process. Therefore, not enough is known about the causes of food waste and how much waste they each generate.
40% of food is wasted
If as a food manufacturer, you are asked how important you think tackling food waste is in your production process… what do you say?
Everyone feels the social responsibility concerning food waste. Especially when you realize that 40% of food is wasted in the entire chain from you as producer to the catering industry, and consumers, according to some estimates. Nevertheless, it is not at the top of every food manufacturer’s priority list. Recognizable?
Embracing the principles of Moerman’s Ladder of Food Waste, which highlights that addressing food waste higher up the ladder retains more value, is not only environmentally responsible but also economically savvy.

Why Food Waste is not (yet) an absolute priority
Food waste is often a blind spot in your production process. It is not immediately visible until you know it is there. In addition, there are 4 reasons why food waste is not yet an absolute priority for many food manufacturers:
Food waste as a profitable business case
There is a way to solve the challenges mentioned above. Suppose you make food waste not only a sustainability goal, but a profitable business case. That you make an invisible problem transparent, including the associated financial costs. But without your own data tools and in-house expertise to make this possible. And then, solve this step by step with predictable investments where you can see exactly what it costs per step and what it yields. Fully in control.
What would that mean for your business?
A low threshold solution for food waste
Do you also want to gain insight into invisible food waste problems based on data, without having to invest tens of thousands of euros? And solve the problem in small predictable steps, demonstrating what it will cost and what it will yield?
