foodity tackles food waste in high end restaurants and hotels while can be applicable to any large enterprises that serve food meals such as shopping malls, caterings, cruise ships etc. To learn more about food waste, visit The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations.
The Food Waste Problem About one third of food is not eaten. Instead, it is thrown out - along with the water, energy, farmland, fertilizer, pesticides, and labor that went into producing it. In Greece, most companies waste around 300 meals of prepared food monthly*. It’s challenging for businesses to estimate the predicted consumption of their customers, and through Foodity, we can ensure that excess food is not wasted. This results in not only a wastage of resources, but it also harms to our environment. Currently, if food wastage was a country, it would be the third biggest country contributor to global greenhouse gas emissions. At Foodity, we want to rescue the food and allow people to have access to lower priced meal options.
