Kitchens using Winnow know exactly what they’re putting in their bins. At Winnow, we help the food service and hospitality industry cut down on food waste by making the kitchen smarter.
With Winnow Vision, our AI-enabled tool, kitchens can automatically track food waste. Winnow Vision uses computer vision to help chefs easily pinpoint waste, cut costs and save time.
Our mission is to connect the commercial kitchen, create a movement of chefs and inspire others to see that food is too valuable to waste.
Our core belief is that food is far too valuable to waste, and that technology can transform the way we use food.
With Winnow Vision, our AI-enabled tool, kitchens can automatically track food waste. Winnow Vision uses computer vision to help chefs easily pinpoint waste, cut costs and save time. The system takes photos of wasted food as it’s thrown away and, using the images, the machine trains itself to recognise what has been thrown in the bin. This means that, over time, food will be thrown in the bin and the data will be captured automatically. This increases data accuracy and ease of use.
Simple and intuitive to use, the Winnow Waste Monitor comprises a digital scale and a connected tablet. Using any bin, team members throw food away in the usual way. The weight is recorded and then the user selects the reason and identifies the item/dish using the tablet.
