ABOUT THE PLEDGE™

The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste is a practical and scalable answer to a widely underestimated issue with dire consequences: Food Waste. In line with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals 2, 12, and 13 and designed on first-hand knowledge from F&B sustainability experts and academics, it helps restaurants to drastically reduce Food Waste, cut on cost, boost their image, and foster collaboration with complimentary food waste solution providers.


The Singapore-based third-party audited certification and benchmarking system is articulated around 7 key pillars that include Process Documentation, Employees Commitment, Food Waste Monitoring System, Food Handling Before Preparation, Food Preparation and Offering, Customer Engagement, and Post Consumer. The angle is for food operations to aim for zero food waste to landfill. The full process is online, and the recommended food waste monitoring methodology has been designed to align with the United Nations’ Draft Food Loss and Waste Standard. The certification process until the audit usually takes 4 to 6 months.
