What is KITRO?
Founded in November 2017 in Canton de Vaud in Switzerland, KITRO focuses on bringing back the value of all food.
Our aim is to bring back the value of all food, so it is appreciated and not wasted.
We envision a world where certifications regulate food waste, for transparent reporting and overview across the supply chain.
>80,000 meals saved!
Impact of food waste
Every day, millions of tons of food are thrown away. Two thirds of all this wasted food is edible. This avoidable food waste along the entire supply chain has detrimental impacts on the environment, and reducing it would prevent unnecessary greenhouse gas emissions and help mitigate climate change.
During their studies at the École hôtelière de Lausanne and working in restaurants and hotels, Naomi and Anastasia saw the tremendous amount of perfectly edible food that is thrown away every single day in the hospitality industry. With first-hand experience in the hospitality industry and computer science, the KITRO team is committed to bringing an innovative solution to food waste, integrating technology into commercial kitchens, and giving actionable insights to the issue of food waste. We continue to build KITRO together with industry professionals to create a user-oriented product that is easy to use and makes sense.
