OzHarvest’s profit-for-purpose enterprise, ForPurposeCo., has teamed up with technology innovator, Winnow, to help Australian and New Zealand chefs reduce their food waste.

Winnow’s technology helps chefs measure, monitor, and reduce their food waste footprint. By understanding the volume of food being lost, and what that means from a financial perspective, commercial kitchens and businesses have been able to reduce their waste by up to 70 per cent while cutting food costs.

“Collectively our clients are saving themselves $21 million every year while becoming more efficient and doing the right thing for the environment,” said Winnow co-founder Marc Zornes.

OzHarvest founder Ronni Kahn believes multiple solutions are needed to tackle the global issue, requiring the efforts of multiple businesses, government and individuals.

“While OzHarvest continues to lead the way in saving food waste and providing quality rescued food to vulnerable people, we started ForPurposeCo. to look at other global solutions out there that can drive positive change,” says Kahn.

“Through this important partnership, ForPurposeCo is now able to promote and provide Winnow’s technology within the Australian and New Zealand market, complementing OzHarvest’s food rescue solution – extending our reach and impact even further.”
