London based Startup Winnow, built a technology that can help track and reduce food wastage tremendously. Through Winnow solution, staff can fill up the type of food they are throwing up in the garbage. At the later stage, it generates reports. This report brings valuable insight for the business owners to find the amount of money lost. It can also help staff to reduce the usage of that particular commodity that is widely un-eaten or un-used.

Winnow solution is easy to implement; A touch screen based platform is added inside the kitchen accessible to cooks and staff as introduced in above video. It is directly connected to the waste bins. Anyone who throws food can log the details in the system. It accepts a wide range of data like food type, leftovers, or a product.
