Tips for Food Waste Reduction – Brisbane – Envirochill
This a really good way to manage food waste. If you donate food that you aren’t using, someone else who is less fortunate can have it. While that’s a really good and positive way of dealing with food waste, as a business owner, it should be in your best interests to make sure you don’t have much food left over.
Some simple planning can save lots of food. For example, if you stock according your menu which strictly follows the cuisine you serve, you’re likely to not waste a lot. If you see that patrons aren’t being able to finish the standard portion size you serve, maybe it’s time to reduce the portion size to save some food and money. Using seasonal produce, shopping local and growing your own herbs can save you time, money and a whole lot of food.
If you don’t want to reduce portion size when patrons aren’t able to finish their dishes, encourage them to take their left overs home rather than chucking it in the bin. You could offer some small gifts if they decide to do that. That way, the goodwill of your business will increase, you will save food and your patrons will be happy.
If you manage your coldroom smartly, you can avoid wasting a lot of food. If your coldroom is well managed and coldroom cleaning is done properly, bacteria and mould can’t grow on or near your food. As a result, food will last much longer. In addition, modern coldroom hygiene technology also means that ethylene is removed from your coldroom which in turn means your fresh produce doesn’t ripen prematurely. So they will stay fresh longer.
