Food waste is a global problem faced in the hospitality industry which is even more pertinent now given the growing awareness related to sustainability and food scarcity. Winnow Vinsion is a smart trash can which can help control food waste, especially in the hospitality industry- although it may later be available for home usage. Using cameras, scales and artificial intelligence, Winnow Vinsion identifies the food thrown into it with an 80 percent accuracy. This helps restaurants better manage their purchasing which is not only good for reducing waste but also for managing their costs more efficiently.
Those in the hospitality industry in Lebanon would benefit from looking into investing into smart trash cans of this sort.
