In 2022, BIT worked with Ne’ma, the UAE’s National Food Waste and Loss Initiative, to test three nudges to reduce food waste in hotel restaurants. The results were stunning: the nudges reduced food waste by up to 44% without affecting customer satisfaction.

To scale the impact of these nudges across the UAE, BIT created a step-by-step guide for restaurants and canteens. It includes support for how to assess baseline levels of food waste, implement the nudges and run a basic pre-post trial.

Now, we’re looking for a food service provider or food waste innovator in UAE (and beyond) and would like to work with us to reduce food waste, please get in touch.
