Salpaus Further Education is one of the largest vocational education providers in Finland. With food waste as a persistent challenge, its catering facilities set a goal to reduce food waste, improve food service operations and generate environmental benefits.
Salpaus wanted a tool with reporting and waste management functionalities to enable its staff to address food waste problems and develop efficient ways of working.
“Our goal was to be able to monitor kitchen food waste on a concrete level instead of speculating,” said Heli Jurkkola, Program Manager at Salpaus Further Education.. “It is too easy to concentrate on waste caused by customer leftovers, which, in fact, is something we cannot even control.”
With CGI Waste Manager, Salpaus’ pilot catering outlet reduced food waste costs by 59%. As a result, the solution was deployed to the rest of its catering outlets, significantly improving its kitchen operations. Read the case study.
