Dubai hotels to count food waste

by

A chain of hotels in Dubai will measure the food waste in their restaurants, aiming to provide data to chefs and to lessen the food waste in such establishments in the emirate.

French hotel chain Accor Hotels has teamed up with Winnow food waste management system to do the initiative.

“The results so far have been very positive, with a reduction of over 50 per cent in total food waste, and a 2 per cent to 8 per cent reduction in food purchasing costs,” The National quoted Sheeba Tharayil, Accor Middle East’s quality and sustainable development manager, as saying.

The first project began in July last year and is now effective in most of Accor’s 132 hotels in the emirate.

“Very useful data, that helps the team to optimise production and engineer menus according to guest preferences,” Tharayil said.

“It’s led to an estimated 5.6 tonnes of food being diverted from landfill,” she added.

About 36 percent of the collected food waste was composted by some hotels.
