ABOUT THE PROJECT
Since December 2021, 22 hotels and restaurants in 6 Indian Ocean territories have joined an ambitious program to reduce their food waste, minimize their associated costs and negative environmental impacts.
Even though food waste is responsible for 8 to 10% of global greenhouse gases, less than 3% of professionals monitor their food waste.
This program includes practical training and implementation of FIT monitoring technology to reduce waste by 35% per cover.
It was designed by LightBlue, a United Nations award-winning start-up that provides technology, professional training, consulting and certification support for food waste prevention across four continents, balancing sustainability with business excellence.
This program is an initiative of the Regional Office of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie (OIF) for the Indian Ocean, which is implemented by Cap Business Océan Indien and Living Labs Federation.
