Become Part of The Restaurant Food Waste Solution
Happy Earth Day! What a great time to reflect on ways we can help planet Earth and all she's done for us. Mother Theresa once said, “I only feel angry when I see waste." When I see people throwing away things we could use.” Each year, restaurants in the U.S. generate an estimated 22 to 33 billion lbs of food waste. The restaurant industry is a major contributor to our waste problem, but now it can be part of the solution to restaurant food waste with FreshFry Pods.
A Solution for Restaurant Food Waste
FreshFry Pods purify frying oil, allowing restaurants to reuse their oil longer, which cuts down on the amount of oil they use throughout the year. The Pods themselves contain recycled plant waste to filter the oil. This plant waste would otherwise end up in a landfill if it wasn't being repurposed.
To date, FreshFry has recycled/eliminated an estimated 11 million lbs of waste, and we pledge to repurpose 1 billion lbs of waste by the year 2031. If you're ready to be part of the solution to restaurant industry waste, there are some major benefits that come with using FreshFry Pods.
1. Save Big Bucks
Food waste also has a staggering price tag, costing this country approximately $218 billion per year. Frying oil is a top-3 food cost of restaurants. Cutting down on the amount of oil your restaurant goes through on a weekly basis adds dollars to your pocket. On average, restaurants save about $2,000 - $4,000 per fryer per year. We have one QSR chicken franchise with 3 locations on track to save a $28,000 this year, and another national QSR chicken chain is projected to save over $20 million this year just by using Pods.
2. Save Time & Labor
Our customers RAVE about how much easier and faster it is to use Pods instead of other traditional frying oil filtration methods. It takes 4 seconds to drop a Pod into a fryer at the end of the night. As an added bonus, because Pods remove polymers, there's reduced/eliminated polymer buildup in the fryer - less for you and your employees to scrub off.
3. Ensure Your Food Quality
FreshFry Pods work to eliminate the invisible impurities from you oil that affect the oil quality. They remove polymers, free fatty acids, carcinogens, and flavor transfer amongst the fried foods. In a blind taste test, customers preferred food cooked in FreshFry-purified oil 100% of the time. Our clients are seeing customer satisfaction surveys come back with 98-100% positive responses. Nowadays, people are going out to eat less due to inflation. It's paramount that restaurants make sure the few times their customers come in are exceptional experiences, because they won't be back if they're not. Circling back to restaurant food waste, customers are much more likely to waste food they don't enjoy.
