Foodservice equipment manufacturer Mechline has launched a new food waste program that will help foodservice operators to reduce waste and increase profits.
Extensively researched and developed, the new program will offer companies step-by-step help and guidance and extends Mechline’s attempts to significantly reduce food waste to landfill in the foodservice sector.
It will supported by the manufacturer’s flagship Waste²O end-of-life food waste bio-digester, which has the capacity to efficiently dispose of up to 180kg of soft, organic food waste, converting it into water in under 24 hours.
Mechline business development director Ian Cresswell said: “Mechline’s Waste²O uses naturally occurring micro-organisms to digest food waste rendering the resultant waste water output completely safe for drains. It’s an innovative alternative to composting methods or macerating that deals with food waste leaving no solids to manage. Waste²O allows operations to responsibly and economically dispose of their food waste with little impact on the environment. “Rising transport and waste processing costs along with government moves toward a reduction of waste to landfill means that food operations are looking long and hard at what they can do to revisit the waste hierarchy in order to comply with legislation and importantly reduce operating costs.”
