WasteWatch, powered by Leanpath technology, is a measurement system that allows kitchen staff to understand what’s thrown away, and why, in real-time. It enables our kitchen teams to easily identify efficiencies, and make informed choices about menus and operating procedures, all backed up by real-time data. 

Our commitment to reducing food waste remains at the forefront of our promise to create a Better Tomorrow and to keep responsible business at the heart of how we do business.

Sodexo will roll out WasteWatch by Leanpath to 100% of relevant sites by 2025.

One office site in Sodexo’s Corporate Services business that recently introduced the technology has already seen an average food waste reduction of 9.5kg per week through, for example, cooking in smaller batches, not peeling carrots, and sharing tips among the team on reducing wastage. You can view more success stories below.

Plant based diets
