Chestnut Ridge, New York (PRWEB) May 20, 2014
BioHitech America is partnering with Fairway Market to help them take the next step toward fulfilling its self imposed objectives of eliminating the hauling of food waste to the landfill and lessening its ecological footprint. With its ongoing commitment to creating a healthier earth, senior management at the 80-year-old brand, has realized that reducing the waste generated is the true key to sustainability.
Ahead of the recent NYC legislation mandating organic waste diversion by 2015, Fairway has been one of the pioneers of food waste recycling with the implementation of BioHitech’s Eco-Safe Digesters in 9 of their 14 locations. The introduction of BioHitech’s new Cloud technology allows the digesters to stream data regarding the company’s waste generation in real time to a management dashboard. Fairway management can now analyze waste added to the digesters by time, date, department, etc. providing them with the necessary data to benchmark facilities, optimize utilization and create best practices. The goal is to adjust purchasing and other operating practices accordingly to minimize the creation of waste, and ultimately providing a cleaner environment as well as improved margins.
With the BioHitech Cloud tool, food waste management is no longer complex across multiple locations. Remote access to the data in real-time provides visibility into Fairway’s company-wide performance, machine-to-machine, day-by-day.” Leveraging the data has also inspired competition and collaboration within the organization resulting in a positive change to Fairway’s behavior and attitude towards waste.
Frank E. Celli, BioHitech’s CEO stated, “We are thrilled about the continued development of our relationship with Fairway. Many people don’t realize that they were one of our first customers and have been a pioneer in the food waste diversion space in NYC long before any legislation was contemplated. We are confident that our BioHitech Cloud will provide them with the valuable information they need to perfect their journey to sustainability while helping to create front of the house efficiencies and improving margins.”
