Excessive food waste hurts your bottom line. Unfortunately, US restaurants generate an estimated 22 to 33 BILLION pounds of food waste every year. Being that food supplies are one of the highest costs for restaurants, you cannot afford to let it go to waste - literally.
You need a waste solutions partner like NWA who disrupts the status quo by continuously evaluating what can be done better to benefit your company, including minimizing food waste to reduce operational expenses.
Are you ready to maximize your restaurant’s profits? Let us show you how we can help you save up to 20% versus your current program on your waste services while keeping you competitive.
Minimize Food Waste to Maximize Your Bottom Line
Waste from the restaurant industry amounts to a cost of $25 billion each year. Stop letting your money go to waste. Many restaurants have reduced their food waste and benefited financially from taking steps such as reducing the number of menu items, reducing portion sizes, and using proper storage practices.
As an effective and proactive waste partner, we’ve helped numerous clients cut down on internal costs typically spent on unnecessary wastage. This can be achieved by implementing methods like source reduction and waste minimization strategies which are formed after careful analysis of your day-to-day operations and waste streams across multiple locations.
Irresponsible Food Disposal Hurts the Environment & Your Cash Flow
Uneaten food is the single largest component of municipal solid waste. In fact, only about five percent of food is actually composted in the U.S. As rotten and expired foods overflow our landfills, those products eventually break down and form methane - a greenhouse gas 86x more potent than carbon dioxide.
In addition to harming the environment, it’s also simply bad for business. In fact, 72% of diners care about how you handle food waste, according to a recent study. With the growing consumer interest of spending their dollars with green companies, it makes good business sense to implement sustainable solutions wherever possible.
Furthermore, landfill tipping fees have also risen as much as 1500% over the last 20 years. Don’t lose out on business or waste your money on landfill costs. Let us walk you through how to implement our sustainable programs to improve your operations, reduce your carbon footprint, and save you money in the process.
We take pride in helping restaurants realize financial savings along with an enhanced brand image by implementing best practices and recycling strategies for organic waste. Such opportunities include methods like participating in local composting programs which turn organic waste into fertilizer or farm feed and partnering with charities, food banks and shelters to donate any unspoiled leftovers, among other creative strategies.
NWA is a provider of green waste services with a team of certified advisors who have implemented sustainable programs that boast best-in-class recovery rates. We have helped many clients on their mission to achieve Zero Waste status with customized strategies.
