The PLEDGE on Food Waste
FIT Food Waste Tech

After an unprecedented commitment in Indonesia, four Bali-based Hyatt hotel properties were all certified Gold by The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste. 


This comes after the four properties gathered together in February 2023 to commit to one clear vision for the hospitality industry:


Embracing sustainable practices and inspire others to adopt the changing landscape.

Almost a year since their commitment, these properties have taken The PLEDGE™ On Food Waste and adopted the FIT Food Waste Monitoring Solution into their daily operations to curtail their food waste for their guests and now have a competitive advantage in the region.

Building on Grand Hyatt Singapore's success story in cutting food waste and saving a whopping 100K USD in ten months; 8 Hyatt properties in APAC joined LightBlue on a human centric food waste prevention program, with the perfect union of dynamic technology operations and personalized solutions and strategies.

The chefs and their teams worked with LightBlue in a joint program over the course of four months and all achieved their goals in capacity building, food waste monitoring and practical change of SOPs for radical reductions.

Scroll through the individual results to see the impact those solutions had on a per-kitchen basis.

Multiple kitchens covered by
FIT Technology
Recording Points

Each participant used FIT on 3 of their kitchens to cover a large chunk of their F&B operations.

This feature allows executives to get a much clearer picture of the food waste situation of their hotel, while most solutions focus on the buffet which represents only 10 to 15% of the total food waste generated. 

Language Adaptation

We've Adapted Our App to 9 Languages!

The FIT tech application and the weekly reports were provided to the participants in 6 languages in APAC:

Mandarin, Thai, Korean, Bahasa, Vietnamese, and Japanese.

FIT Language Support

       Working with 8 Hyatt hotels in 5 countries enabled us to collect unique learning on the topic of food waste across brands, geographies and cultural contexts. The 16-thousand strong data collected and analyzed have proven essential in understanding how much is wasted, when, where in the operations, what and why, in defining the true cost of food waste, and identify what structural issues should be addressed at the corporate level.
