A new food waste reduction system being tested on Stena Saga is aiming to reduce both food waste and food purchasing costs by 15%.
Responsible consumption and production
After every breakfast, lunch, and dinner the weight of the waste bins is noted on a digital display. We also keep track of the type of waste, value as a percentage of sales, grams of waste per cover and CO2-levels.
“Consciousness has grown amongst our employees. Now you think twice before you throw food in the bin. We also see what kind of food we need to buy less of.
Patrik Rothoff, Head Chef at Stena Saga
In the first months of the test food waste on board was reduced by 500kg. After collection of the remaining food waste in port, our contractor makes use of the food waste by turning it into biogas, topsoil and filling material.
