How to Reduce Food Waste in Restaurants

When running a business in the hospitality sector, reducing the environmental impact of your restaurant or cafe could seem like a daunting task (and one that is quite far down the list). But, it's not as complex as you may imagine.

We’ve created a step-by-step sustainability plan for your business on how you can minimise negative impacts on the environment, whilst making a positive contribution to the community and planet.

Start Composting

It's inevitable that waste will be created in your restaurant or cafe, however, it is important to reduce and divert the organic waste going to landfills as much as possible. To help with this, we've made composting easy! With Compost Connect, you can divert organic waste from landfills and instead turn it into compost.

Swap your packaging

By swapping your plastic packaging for compostable alternatives, you could also save a lot of plastic waste going to landfills.

Reduce your energy consumption

Have you ever considered how to reduce your energy consumption? Whether it's in the form of an energy audit, swapping to energy-efficient dishwashers or opting for renewable energy, there are a number of ways to reduce the energy consumption in your restaurant.

Educate your staff

Make sure your customers know about your sustainability efforts, spread the word and get your customers onboard your sustainability journey too.

Become a profit for purpose business

Become a carbon-neutral business and offset your carbon emissions or why don’t you make your business a force for good by becoming a certified B corporation.
