Four Seasons Costa Rica Achieves 50% Waste Reduction, Illustrating its Commitment to Sustainability and Excellence for its Guests
Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at Peninsula Papagayo is a luxury resort with sustainability at the heart of its operations. Reflecting the Costa Rican ethos of living in harmony with nature, the resort has made food waste prevention a top priority. In addition, the resort is part of Four Seasons' goal to cut food waste by at least half by 2030 against its 2019 baseline, in alignment with UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3.
The team began working with Winnow’s Artificial Intelligence technology in August 2022 to successfully cut food waste by 50% in two of the Resort kitchens within the first four months.
This amounts to 40,000 meals prevented from reaching the landfill and $46,000 saved for the resort to reinvest in exquisite, locally sourced ingredients and an overall unmatched experience for its guests. We look forward to seeing further savings and waste reductions from the visionary kitchen team.
