How can we eliminate food waste created by restaurants, institutional cafeterias, and retail grocers? According to the National Conference of State Legislators, food waste is a plague in our supply chains.

It’s a scaled-up, industrial version of the Lomi Home Composter, which we discussed in a recent episode.
