On day three of the 2018 WorldChefs Congress, the educational plenary program was dedicated to Feed the Planet. Presentations focused on the current global food-waste scenario along with empowering programs committed to evolving the seemingly broken food system. After the “big picture” presentations, the focus narrowed down to local, effective initiatives and case studies on food-waste reduction in culinary operations.

Ei Founder Holly Elmore presented on The Profitability of Waste: the business case for food-waste reduction to the global audience of prominent chefs. Ei Supporters Ted’s Montana Grill, Affairs to Remember, and the Georgia World Congress Center Authority | Levy Restaurants were featured in the case studies.
