Every kilo of food waste you save in your restaurants contributes to your bottom line and a lower carbon footprint. That's a cause worth fighting for. Apicbase helps you prevent food waste with advanced menu, inventory and procurement technology.
It could already offset the 10% inflation if food service companies solved the food waste problem through better menu engineering and operational excellence.
1/3 of all food is wasted globally every year.
14% by restaurants and foodservice (Europe).
€1,35 per €15 revenue is lost. (modest estimate)
€7 is gained for every euro invested in food waste prevention.
These figures confirm what we have seen at IKEA: reducing food waste goes hand in hand with reducing costs. We’ve significantly reduced food waste by setting short-term, actionable goals. It’s a strategy everyone can do.
