A Training Resource
Along with hospitality learning platform Lobster Ink, we developed a series of five training videos to help staff embark on a food waste management journey. Access the course through the Lobster Ink platform to track staff progress and access the course manual and training facilitation guide.

This short video introduces the scope of the food waste problem and its environmental context. It outlines the full series and emphasizes the focus on preventing food waste.
The Food Waste Management Task Force
The second video explores the roles of each Food Waste Management Task Force member and the benefits they provide as the program is developed and carried out.
Why do you need to measure and track waste? This video goes over data collection in setting goals to prevent food waste. It explains the areas in a hotel that create food waste and ways to capture and track this waste through a two-stream separation scheme or technology-enabled tracking.
Best Practices Pre-Service
This video explains how to plan low waste menus that make the most of every ingredient and offers recommendations to prevent waste during event sales, menu development, purchasing, storage, and food preparation stages.
