IntoLife wins Norway final in EAT Forum's Local EAT food sustainability innovation award!

Hot off the press!  Last week we learnt that we had won the regional award for Norway (eastern region) in the EAT Forum's nordic award for food sustainability innovation.

Now we are delighted to say that we have won the national award for Norway.  So flattered to be selected, and honoured to be able to attend the EAT Forum 2016 global conference for a chance to meet with world leaders in food sustainability.  All we need to say here is that it is lovely to be recognised for our work!

Great new food sustainability guide from the Food Climate Research Network

IntoLife was privileged to work with the Food Climate Research Network late last year and in the spring of 2016, contributing to a very comprehensive guide and learning tool about food sustainability - the challenges, the potential solutions, and the steps we need to take to transition towards sustainable food systems.  A key finding that comes from this is that there is a need for changes in how and what we consume, and solutions must come from a variety of sources.  IntoLife is proud to play our small part in this process.

Highly recommended as a learning tool for the industry, politicians, students and researchers. Click on the button to go straight to Foodsource.

IntoFood API - integration solutions for food sustainability

We are proud to announce the forthcoming release of the integration platform for IntoFood.  This will allow existing food service management systems to automatically connect to IntoFood and receive sustainability metrics for menus, sales and purchasing.  

By integrating with IntoFood you can see the climate change impact of your menu items, test new menus, and identify hotspots where you have the greatest opportunity to be more sustainable.  You can also see this correlated with your purchasing costs, allowing you to develop climate smart menus that benefit your bottom-line.

We also have the capability to give you benchmarking, so you can see how your environmental impact is reducing over time based on sales or purchasing.

More sustainable menus that are good for business.

We just wanted to let you know about some great successes that food service businesses have been having with IntoFood's menu sustainability solution.

In the restaurant world, Mucho Mas (a popular mexican restaurant in Oslo) have developed a new menu range, measured with IntoFood tools to be both good for the planet and good for their business.  In the first 7 weeks, the sales shift to these new dishes created a climate change saving of 1300kg of greenhouse gases for Mucho Mas.  And their customers loved the new menus!  By the way, 1300kg greenhouse gases is the same as the emissions you would produce by driving 8000km in a car... And Mucho Mas saved this in just 7 weeks.

And in the catering world, a similar story.  Elvebredden Catering used IntoFood's menu sustainability solution to design a new menu tapas range, that had a much lower climate change impact.  Over 4 months, we have seen a shift to this new menu resulting in a 1500kg greenhouse gas saving.  Yep, and that's the same emissions as a lot of km driving a car... 9500km in fact.  And the new menu sales are good for their bottom-line too, giving them a roadmap to build sustainability into their business.  We have now measured all of their menus for climate change impact, so that they can build on this first success.

Proud to be able to use IntoFood technology and business experience to help these food service businesses make a positive difference!
