The first installation of Positive Carbon’s food waste monitoring sensors took place in July 2022 at the Hayfield Family Collection’s five-star Cork City property, Hayfield Manor. Upon seeing the data captured by the new sensors and how it could be utilized in further reducing food wastage and carbon emissions, whilst also enabling the team to make more effective purchasing decisions, the decision was made to roll the program out to all of their locations. In the subsequent two months the Great Southern Killarney and the Killarney Royal Hotel followed suit.
“When you’re running an operation with three sites that have extremely busy kitchens it can be hard to know what is being wasted and why but since working with Positive Carbon we now can monitor our waste to make the necessary changes to end it.”
Michael Jacobi, Managing Director of the Hayfield Family Collection.
The independent hotel group has made significant strides in the past few years to develop their sustainable commitments. Awarding them a reputable name in the industry and pushing forward the sustainability agenda. They are also like any other business concerned with the cost-effectiveness of their strategies, especially in the wake of the pandemic. However, since partnering with Positive Carbon they have not had to sacrifice the sustainability plan for the business plan. Using this food waste prevention technology has allowed them to improve their profitability and reduce their impact on the environment at the same time.
