Leijona Catering Oy is a Finnish catering company whose primary client is the Finnish Armed Forces. As part of its effort to promote sustainability, the company strives to reduce food waste. When the company began using CGI Waste Manager, which is part of the CGI Aromi solution portfolio, it was able to drive significant cost savings across the food service chain.
Leijona Catering prepares more than 70,000 meals per day in the garrisons of the Finnish Armed Forces. In the Armoured Brigade in Parola alone, the company prepares 6,000 meals each week. Because its production volumes are so high, reducing food waste delivers significant financial and environmental benefits.
In addition to waste generated by diners, the company experiences food waste when preparing and serving food. Leijona Catering decided to solve the problem by implementing CGI Waste Manager in 2016. Since then, it has rolled out the solution in all of its cafeterias.
