Hotels dump food worth €180m.

 food0719The EPA released a research report last week – “Reducing Commercial Food Waste in Ireland”along with a number of Fact Sheets and an updated “Less Food Waste – More Profit”
The key figure for the Hotel Sector is the analysis that hotels throw away c. €180 million worth of edible food annually.  This works out at c. €200,000 per hotel in Ireland.  Hotels with large functions discard a much higher quantity than the average.
This research, carried out in 2018/19, confirms the statistics that the Green Hospitality Programme (GHP) has been presenting to the hotel sector for the past 5 years and, whilst some of the KPI’s are different, the scale of the challenge is absolutely clear.
