GLRPPR Sector Resource: Food and Packaging Waste Prevention Tool

Title:
Food and Packaging Waste Prevention Tool

Abstract:
Information on the reason for waste such as over-preparation or improper cooking is important to collect in order to make meaningful changes. Food service establishments can use this tool to track the daily amount, type of, and reason for wasted food and packaging. Users enter information and the tool automatically creates graphs and data summaries to help identify patterns of waste generation. Based on these patterns, a business can make strategic changes to its operation to maximize waste reductions and cost savings. Note: After clicking on the link for this tool, select "Save" instead of "Open" to ensure your browser opens this tool with the right program.
