Food Should be Eaten, Not Wasted

Food should never be thrown away. Our site managers, chefs and kitchen staff have implemented initiatives to cut waste. But this is not enough. We're using data to identify actions that can change behaviour and reduce food waste. For us, it's an opportunity to inspire creativity from our chefs, create new ways of enjoying food, and adopt more efficient operations for our planet.

Reducing waste in the entire process

As consumers ourslves, we know that the food we eat is more than just the nutritional content but also has a direct impact on the environment and communities we live in.
