Food Waste Prevention in Mauritius

10 organizations are embarking their restaurants on a six-month journey to cut on food waste, reduce unnecessary costs and negative environmental impacts, and reach the international certification The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste. This program is engineered by LightBlue, a UN awarded Best Small Business(2021). It is made possible by the HRDC and coordinated by SigneNatir with Business Mauritius. Locally supported by FoodWise and facilitated by Living Labs.

"We believe that The PLEDGE™ is creating an opportunity to engage not only our strong hospitality industry but further ignite the appetite from distinctive diners who are increasingly expecting responsible gastronomy. Our goal is to become a case study for other countries and destinations to follow suit."

“This project being a premiere, we couldn’t expect better conditions that this: 8 years of expertise in food waste prevention is basically encapsulated in this project, combining practical capacity building, technology, data analysis, advanced certification and consulting while nurturing the local ecosystem of food waste solution providers. Multi-dimensional and scalable solutions are now available at destinations’ level, and we will do all we can to make this Mauritius project a resounding precedent for the whole industry."
