The world is wasteful when it comes to food, so for livecookintable® finding ways to reduce the hospitality industry’s food waste has always been a factor in our product design. We know that
globally around one third of food is wasted each year. That’s a shocking statistic. It’s not just economically irresponsible, over a six year period global climate change researchers found that
food waste alone contributes to between 8% and 10% of Greenhouse Gas Emissions (GHGE) worldwide.
Of course, that’s the big picture which everyone in the food and beverage industry needs to be aware of now and in the future. However, it’s also vital for us all to think consciously about cutting down food waste day-to-day. That’s always on our minds at livecookintable® and we’re constantly coming up with new solutions to lower food waste. Here are a few available to the hospitality industry worldwide right now:
Live cooking stations look good and cut food waste
Live cooking stations are practically an essential in buffet line ups up these days. Not only does skillfully making food in front of guests look impressive, cooking on demand is also incredibly efficient in terms of cutting down food waste. This isn’t news to livecookintable®, our range of live-cooking aligned induction hobs have now advanced several generations on the design front and still remain the only ones on the market that are fully GN compatible.
All our hobs incorporate two cooking and two warming zones with temperatures up to 94°C are precisely touchscreen controlled. A wok-zone is another versatile live cooking option in our
induction hob range. No matter how ambitious chefs are, all hobs are quick to single-handedly set up and each only weighs 15kg so they’re also easy to transport and store.

Multipots perfect waste-free portion control
Award-winning Multipots are another of livecookintable®’s revolutionary waste saving products designed to integrate effortlessly into our range of Baukasten modular kitchen furniture. Multipots allow chefs to fry, steam or boil food to order with as little equipment in play as possible. So not only are buffet line-ups kept down in size, practically every centimetre of work-space becomes useable. Potential for waste is radically reduced because Multipots efficiently produce individual portions, almost entirely eradicating wasteful batch cooking.
