KITRO reduces avoidable food waste by providing restaurants with automated hardware and software solutions to identify, manage, and monitor the source and quantity of food waste and reduce the hidden cost of food waste.
According to the project website, the smart bin system could reduce food waste by as much as 40%, save more than CHF 100'000 and thousands of meals per year. The smart bin system has been used in many restaurants and hotels, and the system helps restaurants and hotels reduce waste and costs. According to Dörte Bachmann, the Sustainability Manager in SV Group, gives a positive comment, "KITRO provides a very easy-to-use device and good support for reducing food waste. We were able to optimize the operations in one of our restaurants with a 34% reduction in plate waste during a 3-month pilot."
