Fonda Mexican

Location: Hawthorn

Using the program, the restaurant’s team discovered food waste in parts of the business that they least expected. To solve this issue, the team developed an action plan and successfully reduced waste.

The restaurant manager Giacomo Strappa said, “Every day, it can be a $10-waste but over 52 weeks, it can get up to thousands of dollars… It definitely helped us understand where to save more money.”
