NRA, LeanPath Team Up to Fight Food Waste


WASHINGTON, D.C.—The National Restaurant Association (NRA) named LeanPath Inc., creators of automated food waste monitoring systems, as a preferred supplier of its Conserve sustainability program. LeanPath provides systems which enable foodservice professionals to dramatically reduce food waste, lower food costs and operate more sustainable facilities.  

“As part of our Conserve Program, NRA provides tips and tools for restaurant operators looking to minimize food waste to run a more sustainable operation,” said Jeff Clark, Conserve Program Director. “Preventing food waste has a triple-line bottom impact: environmental, social and financial. As a program collaborator, LeanPath will help us connect operators with tools and expertise on how to measure and minimize food waste.”

“We’re thrilled to partner with the National Restaurant Association to tackle such an important issue,” says Andrew Shakman, Founder and CEO of Leanpath. “We know that food waste is a significant problem most every operation battles and thus far it’s been challenging to get ahead of it. LeanPath solutions shape foodservice culture in a way that engages employees and leads them to focus on everyday decisions which drive down waste.”

As NRA continues to tackle the issue of food waste, LeanPath offers two primary solutions: LeanPath 360, a comprehensive food waste tracking platform that weighs, photographs, characterizes and appraises the value of waste items for higher-volume foodservice operations; and LeanPath Zap, a tablet-based food waste tracking software which is easy to use in conjunction with existing kitchen scales. Both solutions provide real-time, cloud-based reporting via the LeanPath Online platform, including alerts and intuitive dashboards with drill-down capabilities.
