Bread and toast
Due to it’s relative low cost, many businesses automatically serve bread or toast to customers (particularly during breakfast but also as side to soups or other dishes). By adding a quick check with the customer before serving bread or toast, you can make a real difference to what ends up in the bin. This can be done by staff or by making sure it’s clear on the menu.
For buffet style breakfast, installing a toaster for self-service has been shown to be incredibly effective at reducing waste. In fact, this step saved a local hotel over €5,000/annum in bread purchase and waste disposal costs!
