EKFC has engaged Winnow to gradually roll out an advanced food waste management system in its state-of-the-art catering facilities. Leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, the tool will enable EKFC to automatically monitor and control food waste for the benefit of its customers, its people and broader communities.

 

Saeed Mohammed, CEO of Emirates Flight Catering, said: "We are dedicated to investing in the latest technologies to optimise our operations and minimise our environmental footprint. Food waste management has always been an area of focus for EKFC and we have already achieved remarkable results through improved data collection and reporting.

 

"Implementing new ways of working, supported by technology will help us step up to the next level and further enhance operational efficiency. We look forward to delivering on our ambitious goal of reducing food waste by more than one-third across our central operations."

 

Marc Zornes, CEO and co-founder of Winnow, said: "We are delighted to partner with Emirates Flight Catering helping them in their quest to cut their food waste by 35%. Food waste is a global problem that we must solve urgently to combat the effects of climate change. Artificial Intelligence has an important role to play in reducing avoidable wastage, and forward-thinking foodservice providers like Emirates Flight Catering prove that this technology delivers real world results for both people and planet."
