A startup is turning waste into wealth by helping companies like Ikea slash the amount of food they throw away.
The global hospitality industry trashes food worth $100 billion a year, estimates Winnow, which says its technology can save commercial kitchens big bucks and stop good food going to waste.
Winnow shows chefs how much they’re wasting in real time, and what it costs their employers.
Retail giant Ikea estimates that Winnow (and U.S. competitor LeanPath) have helped its in-store restaurants save the equivalent of 350,000 meals worth nearly $900,000 in just eight months.
