New food waste online training for hospitality staff available now
Join the growing number of hospitality businesses who are taking action to reduce food waste while making a positive impact on their profits and the planet with the new online food waste reduction training for staff, the Savour Food e-Training.
Topics covered include:
- The issue of food waste waste and food waste management best practices,
- The importance of food waste measurement,
- Taking action and keeping up that momentum for lasting change.
The course takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and can be undertaken independently at the user’s own pace on a PC or mobile device.
The e-Training is suitable for a broad set of workers within hospitality (including kitchen porters, front of house staff, chefs, management) and can be delivered at induction or as part of continuing professional development.
It will support the environmental programme of a business by giving crucial members of the team an introduction to waste management. It includes short videos and quiz questions, awarding workers who complete the e-Training with a certificate.
Though the foodservice industry generates a significant amount of food waste, it is an area with considerable scope for improvement. Some simple steps food businesses can take include better stock inventory, reducing portion sizes, offering doggy bags for leftovers, improving the layout of bins and bin signage.
This online training has been created in consultation with industry partners and tested with culinary students at Munster Technological University Cork who reported it to be helpful, interesting and informative.
This training is available free of charge. The Savour Food Programme is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine.
