Food waste is a major and costly issue for Poland. The country wastes an average of 8.9 million tonnes of food every year. The amount of wasted food in Poland represents almost 60% of the value of Polish food exports from 2016. This issue implies a range of negative effects, including a great economic loss and environmental loss.
But, the example from Novotel Warsaw Centrum shows that the Polish hospitality sector is becoming more aware of the consequences of food waste and is looking for ways to reduce it.
