Winnow is an old agricultural term meaning to separate the grain from the chaff or to separate the good from the bad. We do just that. Most food thrown away has value and could have been reused to make something else. Our technology helps to identify and prevent avoidable waste.

About Winnow

Winnow makes cutting edge technology to help chefs cut food waste in half. We connect commercial kitchens all over the world to the cloud allowing them to record and analyse exactly what is put in the bin. This gives chefs the information necessary to drive improvements in their production processes to cut food waste in half, saving money and reducing their environmental footprint at the same time. Simple and intuitive, the Winnow System has been designed specifically for busy kitchens

We believe that what gets measured gets managed, and by using technology and information intelligently, kitchens can be made more efficient.

We believe that it is all of our responsibility to make the most from our food. To cook smarter, and that food is too valuable to waste.
