Restaurant Technology News recognizes inventory management and BizIQ reporting guidance for cutting restaurant food waste

This week Restaurant Technology News, the hospitality industry’s premier source of information and insights related to technology innovation at the world’s leading quick service, fast casual and full service restaurants, announced the winners of its RTN Choice Awards for Environmental Good — with CrunchTime earning the award for Restaurateurs’ Choice Award for Environmental Good!

RTN’s annual awards were established to recognize excellence and innovation in providing and/or utilizing next-generation technologies to achieve sustainability and eco-friendly practices in restaurant operations, and winners are selected through voting by Restaurant Technology News readers and staff.

“It has been said that if food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gasses after the United States and China. According to the United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organization, approximately one third of food produced globally each year goes to waste. In the United States alone, food waste is estimated to be between 30 to 40 percent of the total food produced annually,” RTN said in announcing the winners. “It’s no surprise, then, that focus areas for 2019 were in the areas of excellence in utilizing technology to reduce restaurant energy consumption and food waste and also excellence in utilizing eco-friendly restaurant materials.”

CrunchTime stood out as an award-winning software solution for food management that’s proven to tighten inventory and reduce food waste – achieving lower waste, less spoilage, less theft, lower food costs and higher profits. CrunchTime’s Actual vs. Theoretical Food Costing helps its customers save 2-5% on food costs, bringing significant ROI in addition to the environmental impact.
