Why this course?

There is too much hot air around food waste, and with the climate bomb ticking, time to apply tangible solutions is now.

The PLEDGE’s purpose is to be the most hands-on system for food service professionals eager to cut on food waste, save on cost, and be prepared for what will be the new “Business as Usual”. 


Not a class, this workshop is in fact a TECHNICAL traineeship to start your career as Food Waste Consultant. Acquire specific knowledge, coupled with robust methodology and actionable tools, to confidently accompany YOUR customers through the certification process.

You are not only answering the demand of a growing crowd of foodies with an increasing appetite for responsible dining options, you are creating your own responsible business too.
