Measuring food waste is the first step in curtailing waste and only disruptive technology will offer the change necessary to accelerate smarter solutions and outcomes. Powered by the Internet of Things, BioHiTech’s onsite aerobic Digesters apply sensor technology, to capture a digital representation of quantity and type of waste as well as machine performance, status, and usage.
The Digester’s connective device provides managers up-to-date, easy-to-access waste data 24/7/365 so that corrective actions can be taken proactively when necessary, improvements can be made to supply chain management and work processes and waste reductions can be achieved. Access to this real-time waste data allows a kitchen to know what precisely is being thrown away and when in order to optimize vendor and supplier orders in order to reduce the quantity of food that is wasted. Digitization also ensures ongoing compliance.
While most food waste disposal solutions are expensive BioHiTech’s Digesters are not. They are cost-effective for a both high and low volume users.
