Background
Is there such a phenomenon in your company?
A large number of prepared food and ingredients are wasted,because of the inestimable number of diners.
For instance, when a staff canteen with a scale of 200 people prepares lunch for the next day, if the actual number of diners is 140 people, then there may be 60 meals wasted down the meal, there are 300 meals will be wasted in five days a week, and over a month, up to 1,200 working meals may be wasted. It could not only be wastes of food, but also wastes of labors. In a word, it can be said to be a multiple waste of a company's time cost, labor cost and procurement cost.
 • According to statistics, about 35 million tons of grain is consumed and wasted in China every year, which is close to 6% of China's total grain output.
 • Per capita food waste in China's catering industry is 93 grams per person per meal, with a waste rate of 11.7 percent.
 • In China, 38 percent of food is wasted at big parties and a third of students` packed meals are thrown away.
 • The amount of food wasted in China's urban catering industry alone is as high as 17 million to 18 million tons each year, equivalent to 30 million to 50 million people a year.
