Introducing Pelican Procurement's New Food Waste Management Tool!

Published: 26th September 2023

Taking action to reduce waste isn't just great for the planet – it's also a smart business move. Research indicates that for every £1 invested in a waste reduction plan, you can expect to save £14.

We are thrilled to introduce Pi's Food Waste Monitoring Tools, designed to empower care home catering teams in effectively managing food waste throughout their kitchen operations. By doing so, you can significantly cut costs while aligning with your financial and sustainability objectives.

With this innovative tool, you'll have the ability to:
  1. Track Waste Generation: Monitor when and where waste occurs in your facility.
  2. Calculate Waste Costs: Easily determine the financial impact of food waste.
  3. Evaluate Reduction Strategies: See the real-time effectiveness of your waste reduction strategies.By accurately recording waste data across your organisation and calculating the associated costs, adjust suppliers' orders and streamline kitchen operations for maximum efficiency.
Recorded data are also displayed in friendly graphs so you can easily and quickly track your waste reduction progress month by month.

What sets us apart is flexibility. A Pelican client can customise the system to monitor and measure specific aspects of their food waste. Plus, being integrated into the Pi system, this tool automatically harvests additional data, giving you more visibility across your operation.

As is customary with Pi, our new food waste tool is offered to Pelican clients as part of our value-added service. There are no extra costs for Pelican clients who wish to take advantage of this invaluable feature.

Join us in the fight against food waste, boost your kitchen's efficiency, and make a positive impact on both your bottom line and the environment with Pi's Food Waste Monitoring Tools!
