Freshmarx Food Waste Tracker System combines the power of the industry-leading Avery Dennison® Freshmarx® 9417+® Labeling System, and a weigh scale and software, to help restaurants measure and analyze food waste, lower inventory costs and minimize waste - all in one easy-to-use application. Food weight is automatically imported from an integrated scale, or the weight or other units of measure can be entered manually. This tracking system helps restaurants to determine exactly how much food inventory is lost as a result of inaccurate inventory management and kitchen processes. Store managers can easily track the reason for the waste and where the waste occurs and enact action plans to reduce waste in the future.
