We have partnered with Winnow in a bid to reduce the amount of food waste in our hotels.
In an effort to reduce our food waste and MAKE TRAVEL MATTER®, Red Carnation Hotels has partnered with waste-management company Winnow Solutions. At the forefront of intelligent waste management, Winnow uses groundbreaking AI technology to assist in reducing unnecessary waste. Here we talk to CEO and Founder, Marc Zornes, about Winnow and what our partnership will mean for our commitment to responsible travel.
'In 2011, I came to the realisation of how big the issue of food waste actually was. When the FAO released its groundbreaking report on Global Food Losses and Food Waste, it hit home that this was an issue that needed to be addressed. After recognising that there was roughly $1 trillion of food wasted every year, I couldn’t get it out of my mind and felt compelled to build a company helping to solve this problem.'
'Plastics is a big focus, with companies shifting away from single-use plastics such as water bottles and straws. This is great news as single-use plastics are not good for the environment. It’s exciting to see so much being done to reduce waste in the hospitality industry.'
