“Throwing away food is like stealing from the table of those who are poor and hungry.” Pope Francis

One of the most successful businesses is left behind because of the quantity of waste it produces each day. People live to eat and eat to waste. It is very important to save food and not drop them into bins.

According to WRAP, the business is creating around 3,415, 000 tonnes of waste each year, which will ultimately affect the business and also create a shortage of food. We should always know and understand the value of food and try to reduce wasting it, as 1,473,000 tonnes are directly being disposed.

Here are some tips to help reduce food wastage.

Over-bulking

A restaurant business definitely needs a lot of ingredients in stock but keep only the required amount for every ingredient comes with an expiry date. It is important to buy some extra ingredients but stocking up is wrong. Always list the things needed and buy it so it’s important to maintain a list.

Store food correctly

Always store the food correctly; things that are to be kept in fridge should be there, the things tightly closed should be placed at a safe place, tightly closed. Check on the ingredients to be kept in the fridge. Maintain a shelf with all the spices and dry ingredients. It will help preserving the quality and will save it from wasting it. 

Check on Expiry Dates

Stock rotation is important to ignore wasting spoiled food. It is essential to keep a check on the products and their expiry dates and use it by the time it gets expired. It is the best way to ignore wastage and keep everything healthy on the shelf.

Portion control

The salads, fries, vegetables for the sides are definitely a reason of food wastage. People usually get full midway leaving the side dishes as well as the main course, which leads to excess food waste. They forget the portion size they eat and order too much which leads to loss of food, hard work and time. It is important to eat in a limit, order minimum at first and ignore wasting food.

Donate the food

The best way to ignore food wastage is to donate them. The restaurant can give it away to the needy and poor or can also connect with a local charity house and give it to them. Why waste the food which can come in someone’s use. We can at least try to not waste the food.

Use the leftovers

We can use the leftovers that can be used again like bread crumbs, vegetables that can be used for soups, vegetable and other dishes. If it can be incorporated in any dish, we can ignore throwing it away and use it in other dishes or as garnish.

Pack the leftovers

Studies show that around 35% of the waste comes from the customers plate, which is something they can they home and eat rather than throwing it away. The restaurants can offer packing the food for them and handling it to them as takeaways. This will help reduce some wastage.  

Train employees to not waste extra food

It should be a priority for the employees to restrict wasting of food. They should know how to store and reuse the food. The employees are responsible to control 70% of the wastage, so it’s very important to train the employees and help them in restricting the food wastage.
