Food Waste is a global phenomenon defined as food that is of good quality and fit for human consumption, but that does not get consumed because it is discarded – either before or after it spoils1. Singapore is no exception.
In 2019, the amount of food wasted by Singapore is roughly equivalent to 51,000 doubledecker buses2. With various projects and legislation to cut down on food wastage, Singapore is well on its way to becoming more sustainable and food-efficient. However, there seems to be a lack of a systematic approach for food waste management in special occasions that tend to generate a massive amount of food waste.
Focus on weddings as a case study for special occasions and propose a food waste management plan based on Lean Six Sigma.
• Involve large venues with ballrooms and extravagant bouquets and buffets;
• Typically lead to significant amounts of food waste.
In your food waste management plan, show how Lean Six Sigma can be applied to reduce food wastage in the various processes involved in the food supply chain for wedding events.
