Is food retail or service a part of your operation? Do you generate food waste?

The first thing to realize is that food waste is actually a valuable resource when handled appropriately.
This website is here to help you successfully utilize that resource by preventing and diverting your food waste.

Who is this website for?

The first iteration of this website is dedicated to supporting non-manufacturing businesses involved in food retail or service:            

  • Colleges and universities
  • Hotels
  • Hospitals and nursing homes
  • Restaurants
  • K-12 schools
  • Supermarkets and grocery stores
  • Entertainment facilities 
  • Wholesale / distribution centers

Future work will incorporate information and tools for other key groups of stakeholders including organics haulers and processors.
