Iberostar Hotels & Resorts Reduces Food Waste by 28% in the First Half of 2023 with AI Implementation in its Hotels

Tuesday, Aug 01, 2023 0


As part of its ambitious Agenda 2030, Iberostar is working to be waste-free by 2025 and carbon neutral by 2030. 


Iberostar Hotels & Resorts and Winnow are celebrating a successful partnership in the first half of 2023 by reducing food waste and achieving significant progress in their journey towards a waste-free future by 2025. With Winnow AI technology now installed in 48 of the 100+ Iberostar hotels globally, this progress includes:


  • Cutting food waste by 28 percent in hotels with AI technology installed and onboarded.
  • Globally hotels using AI technology are saving 1.5 million meals per year which is well on our way to reaching our target of 5.3 million meals.
  • Globally and from January – June 2023: 735K total meals saved – 11 percent reduction in waste weight – 1,264 tons of CO2 saved
  • From a climate perspective, this translates to 2,500 tons of CO2e reduced per year – the equivalent of 6.4m miles driven by a passenger car (source: EPA calculator)


As part of its ambitious and pioneering sustainability movement called Wave of Change, Iberostar Hotels & Resorts partnered with Winnow in September 2022, with the aim of saving 1,600 tons of food waste per year, equivalent to 5.3 million meals.


Megan Morikawa, Iberostar’s Global Sustainability Director, says, “Our partnership with Winnow is a testament to our commitment towards a waste-free future. It is truly inspiring to see our chefs embrace the program and create tangible change. This achievement reinforces Iberostar’s position as a leader in creating a sustainable travel industry.”


Marc Zornes, CEO of Winnow, adds, “Iberostar has shown incredible dedication to combating food waste, and their ambitious goals align perfectly with Winnow’s mission. We are excited to see the positive impact our collaboration has already made, and we look forward to further supporting Iberostar in reaching their waste-free target by 2025.”


These milestones demonstrate the vital role the hospitality industry can play in addressing climate change and creating a sustainable and positive tourism.
