How Does Food Waste Management Work?

OPTIMIZE THE VALUE CHAIN FOR BREAD & PASTRY PRODUCTS WITH OUR SOLUTIONS

Avoid Sold-Out Situations & Food Wastage!

Sold out of your best-selling bakery products or too much bread left in the shelves by the end of the day? The first situation means lost sale and the second is food waste.

Link Waste Management System is designed to go empty of slow-moving products early in the evening – and never go empty of Bestsellers. With this approach our solution maintains, or even increase the sales numbers in the bread department – at the same time as wastage is reduced with 30% or more.

low wastage of bread and pastry products

First of all, decide the level of wastage yourself! Get wastage of “industry products” to zero. Buy in less – get empty earlier. Reduce wastage of bread baked in-store to a minimum – and sell “the rest” the next morning.


ALWAYS HAVING SUFFICIENT PRODUCT RANGE & FRESH BREAD IN YOUR SHELVES

Best-sellers will be on the shelf until closing time. Side assortment in shelf from morning until late afternoon. Baking plans assuring that the store is baking with a high frequency and always present fresh bestsellers of the pieces of bread.

Never sold out of the best-seller products

Baking plans assuring that the store is baking with a high frequency so that you always have fresh best sellers of breads.
