Food waste is still a largely uncategorized type of waste in most sustainability certifications and labels in the tourism sector. With the environmental impact of food waste reaching critical levels, more monitoring systems must be in place to calculate food waste costs in operations on a daily basis. In addition, hotel and restaurant managers are still using incomplete Key Performance Indicators, with the Food Cost percentage still being the industry standard, even if it does not accurately reflect food management efficiency.
