Why Use It?

1) Financial: save on food costs

  • LeanPath’s tracking and monitoring capabilities make it easy to record what’s being thrown out.
  • View mobile, real-time insights via email, text or in your LeanPath dashboard.
  • Make smarter data-based decisions on portioning and purchasing to shave up to 6% off your food costs.
  • Example: MGM Grand Buffet in Las Vegas, NV, is a high-demand, high-quality buffet that successfully reduced food waste by more than 80% and is now saving between $6,000 and $9,000 a month in food costs.

2) Social: engage your team!

  • Food waste monitoring engages your team and enables them to be the solution. It feels better to feed people than feed the landfill!
  • LeanPath has helped hundreds of foodservice operations of all sizes over the past ten years to create a waste fighting culture.
  • LeanPath provides free and engaging staff training.

3) Environment: operate sustainably

  • When you waste food, you also waste the resources that went into growing or producing it.
  • When food in a landfill rots, it becomes a significant source of methane emissions.
  • Reducing food waste helps your company leave a smaller environmental footprint.
