Food Waste Prevention in Mauritius

10 organizations have participated with their restaurants on a nine-month journey to cut on food waste, reduce unnecessary costs and negative environmental impacts. At the end of this project all the participants reached the international certification The PLEDGE™ on Food Waste. This program was implemented by LightBlue, a UN awarded social entreprise. It was made possible by the HRDC and coordinated by SigneNatir with Business Mauritius. Locally supported by FoodWise and facilitated by Living Labs.

Tailored support from Accredited Consultants

"We believe that The PLEDGE™ is creating an opportunity to engage not only our strong hospitality industry but further ignite the appetite from distinctive diners who are increasingly expecting responsible gastronomy. Our goal is to become a case study for other countries and destinations to follow suit."

“This project was a premiere, we couldn’t expect better conditions that this: 9 years of expertise in food waste prevention is basically encapsulated in this project, combining practical capacity building, technology, data analysis, advanced certification and consulting while nurturing the local ecosystem of food waste solution providers. Multi-dimensional and scalable solutions are now available at destinations’ level, and we did all we could to make this Mauritius project a resounding precedent for the whole industry."
