What is the issue addressed?

GreenBytes addresses food waste in the HORECA sector. Food waste contributes 3 times more greenhouse gas emissions than the global aviation industry. In the HORECA sector food gets wasted because ordering the right amount of food is time consuming and confusing.

How is the problem solved?

GreenBytes prevents food waste before it happens. Basically, we suggest how much food a food retailer will need in the upcoming days. To do this we break down menus, track stock, and predict future food consumption using AI.

What is the customer target?

The potential clients are restaurants and grocery stores.

How is this solution different?

GreenBytes is unique for taking a preventative approach to reducing food waste and designing the service to be intuitive for the HORECA industry. Software this powerful is usually reserved for data analysts which is why the web app is designed to be used even in the kitchen.
