Tackling food waste and obesity


This hotel in Tromso is trying to halve its food waste. But how?


Let's start with these smoothie shots. These are made from yesterday's leftover fruit.


Then, crafty tricks to nudge people into taking less, like skinny tweezers to stop you piling up the salmon. Or little spoons to serve the herring. Another idea, instead of guests taking a big melon slice and leaving some, the staff dice it. So you take precisely what you want.

Many people load onto their plates so they don't have to go multiple times. We're able to make people think about how they put food on their plate, and how much they bring to the table to make sure that they eat it all.


Another trick is to keep food looking fresh. As a serving dish empties, guests assume the remains are stale. So why not switch the food into a smaller dish? Then again, so it still looks fresh and it all gets eaten.


Ideas like this have cut food waste almost 10% in a year for this chain. The target is 20% by 2020, and then 50% by 2030 - the same as the UN target.

类似的方法已为这家连锁酒店在一年之内减少了近 10% 的食物浪费。他们的目标是到 2020 年减少 20%,到 2030 年减少 50%,这与联合国相关的目标一致。

The chef weighs the daily waste. So far, the policy has saved the hotel chain 26 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions. And there's a bonus.

厨师给每天浪费掉的食物称重。到目前为止,此方法已帮该连锁酒店减排共 26 吨的二氧化碳。它还有一个好处。

We're also making money of it, which is really a positive side effect by reducing food waste.


So, how do guests respond to this culinary nanny state?

(I) think it's very a good thing. I feel that it helps the environment, but it also helps myself to not gain - what do you call it? - weight that I don't need.


There is no ban on loading up your plate here, but you'd better not leave it.
