Food That Can Be Donated Should Not Be Wasted
Preventive actions are the most important when we talk about reducing food waste. Data is a key element that supports preventive actions. With the JAMIX Kitchen Intelligence System you can monitor the amount of food waste based on facts. When you have accurate data in hands it is easy to set targets for reducing food waste. With the system you can follow how the targets are reached, as well.
Despite preventive actions you might still generate some food waste. Food that is suitable for donation should not be wasted. Less waste equals to savings in wastage costs and less strain on the environment. In addition, donating food provides valuable help to food charity customers.
