To run a successful restaurant is most certainly no easy feat and we applaud you if you are one of those gifted restauranteurs who have already achieved it.
Whether you are just starting out or you are a restaurant industry veteran, embarking on a cost-cutting exercise at regular intervals (or even on an ongoing basis) is always a good idea, without compromising on quality of course. In fact, in some areas, a “leaner” approach could actually increase the quality of food and service.
Food, glorious food – the delicious cornerstone of your whole business.
On 20 March 2019, the Minister for the Environment announced the key findings of Australia’s National Food Waste Baseline, which is part of implementing the National Food Waste Strategy.
In 2016-17, Australia produced 7.3 million tonnes of food waste across the supply and consumption chain. Of this, 2.5 million (34%) was created in our homes, 2.3 million tonnes (31%) in primary production and 1.8 million tonnes (25%) in the manufacturing sector. That’s a lot of food, some portion of which is being wasted in restaurants across Australia.
How you can do your part in reducing food wastage and your food costs at the same time (not just in your restaurant, but also in your own home):
There are many ways to bring down your food costs, and just as importantly, overall food wastage in Australia. Not only will you be boosting the profits in your business, you will also be playing a part in caring for our one-and-only planet. This has the makings of a good public relations story, so also think about how you can turn your food wastage reduction initiatives into an opportunity to promote your brand.
