We are happy to announce that Winnow won the Brands For Good Asia Awards 2018 in the Managing Environmental Impact and Sustainable Resource categories. Supported by both Maybank Singapore and BBX, Brands For Good recognises forward-thinking businesses that are committed to creating a more sustainable society in the future.
According to Glenn Lim, founder of Brands for Good and director of CEO Asia, companies should be taking the lead in encouraging behaviour change towards sustainability. "Brands have the power to create shared value through purpose-driven strategies."
We hope this award can inspire others to see that food is too valuable to waste. Winnow opened in Singapore in 2015. Since our arrival, we have expanded to several new Asian markets and proved that the solution works in almost every kitchen worldwide. Now, chefs and teams using Winnow are saving 15 million meals every year. Our clients typically save 3-8% on food costs and reduce their environmental footprint at the same time.
Maxime Pourrat, Managing Director at Winnow APAC, said: “We are thrilled to have been presented with the Brands for Good Awards. It really validates our mission. We are looking forward to continue expanding in Asia so our technology can keep helping chefs cut food waste in half."
Sustainability is the core of our business, but we made our approach official after joining the B Corp community last year. B Corp is a company that looks at aligning profit with the positive impact of the business on people and the environment. It is a for-profit business that has social and environmental outcomes as part of its mission. We are proud to be part of a community striving to create global change by redefining the role that business plays in society.
With the increase of movements toward sustainability, such as Brands for Good and B Corp, we have every reason to be optimistic about the future. I am proud and honoured to have the opportunity to be working with the Winnow team and help them transform the commercial kitchen into a more sustainable environment.
The Brands for Good Awards Asia 2018 took place at the Marina Bay Sands, on the 26th of July.
