Many food and beverage brands fail to take sustainability into consideration. With the help of Total Organics Recycling, Karuna is furthering its philosophy of food waste reduction.
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization, around one-third of all food produced in the world is wasted. From careless production processes to consumer waste, that’s over 1.4 billion US tons of food per year. In fact, in the US, over 30% of food supply is wasted.
Companies like Total Organics Recycling, here in the St. Louis area, are helping local companies limit their waste contributions by collecting organic waste to be composted. Organic food waste is taken to a St. Louis Composting commercial composting facility, where these foods come full circle to provide nutrients for new plants to grow.
Every week, Total Organics Recycling collects around 300 tons of organic food waste. By taking the responsibility of taking waste to a composting facility off of business owners’ plates, Total Organics Recycling makes it easy for any restaurant or local business to reduce waste output. This not only makes the business more sustainable, but it also makes the world a better place. A true win-win!
