UFS World Menu Report “Sustainable Kitchens: Reducing Food Waste”

UFS World Menu Report

Unilever Food Solutions’ latest World Menu Report demonstrates the issue of food waste hits a nerve with U.S. consumers who eat out at least once a week. Nearly 80 percent of U.S. diners express concern about the amount of food thrown away every day in restaurants, cafeteria and other out-of-home venues.

The global report surveyed 4,000 diners in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, Poland, Brazil and Turkey to measure consumers’ attitudes toward the food service industry’s food waste disposal methods and sustainability practices. The report also showed: 

  • Seventy-two percent of U.S. diners are concerned about environmentally-friendly disposal of food waste.
  • More than 60 percent felt that there should be more transparency about the sustainable practices of restaurants.
  • Nearly half would spend more for meals at restaurants and food service locations that are taking steps to limit food waste.

The report’s focus on sustainability highlights one of the fundamental initiatives that Unilever Food Solutions is dedicated to addressing through its enhanced consultation services, specifically its “Your Kitchen” service. Through this service area, Unilever Food Solutions works with restaurant chefs and operators to help run organized and efficient kitchens that work smarter rather than harder.
