Globally, the push for food waste reduction efforts has gained momentum – creating more growth drivers and amplifying the need for food waste solutions providers like Winnow. The 2023 United Nations Climate Change Conference agenda featured food and agricultural systems as a distinctive theme for the first time. According to the United Nations, around 13% of food produced is lost between harvest and sale, while about 17% of global food production is wasted in total across households and commercial food services. With the scale of food loss and waste exacerbating the emission of greenhouse gases, the food and hospitality sector that Winnow specialises in plays an important role in global food waste reduction.

Sugandhi Matta, Chief Impact Officer at ABC Impact, said, “Food loss and wastage has a vast economic, social, and environmental impact – depleting resources, worsening global hunger, and increasing greenhouse gas emissions. The innovative AI-driven food waste management solution developed by Winnow has been successfully deployed globally and we are excited to support Winnow’s growth by reaching more commercial kitchens in Asia in the coming years. When we reduce food loss and waste, we can mitigate the pressure on climate, water, and land resources – and ultimately contribute towards a more sustainable future.”

We look forward to working with ABC Impact to further enhance our world-leading AI capabilities and to bring greater profitability and sustainability to Asia’s kitchens.”
