Cut food waste and costs

Upwards of 15% of the food served in delis, hot bars and self serve counters ends up in the bin according to Winnow’s data. Our technology helps cut this in half, significantly reducing purchasing costs whilst reducing environmental impact.

Improved profitability

In the US, on average retailers waste twice as much as they make in profits (source: ReFed). Winnow’s analytics helps prevent waste before it happens, thereby maintaining margins and stabilising purchase costs.

Complete visibility

Measuring food waste for fresh food has always been a challenge for retailers. Manual measurement is time consuming and inaccurate. Winnow’s automated waste measurement gives retailers improved visibility and control.

Inventory quality & availability

Perpetual inventory has been the norm for decades, but food waste from fresh food counters lead to errors in replenishment. Winnow’s digital measurement tools give retailers granular data at item level helping reduce errors.
