Mission & History

Food FWD's mission is to make food waste diversion the easiest and most economical choice for the Triangle food service industry by diverting pre- and post-consumer food waste from land-fills, and hauling it to composting facilities where it can remain a vital part of the food-cycle.

Services & Products

Food FWD’s primary service is to provide routine food waste collection for restaurants, schools, hospitals, and other commercial food service providers on a customizable once, twice, or thrice weekly schedule. Food waste is collected from food waste carts, the carts are re-line with biodegradable liners, and returned to the area designated by the customer for their storage. Food waste diversion from landfills to compost facilities gives the restaurant a simple, high-impact way to reduce their carbon footprint and show their customers how committed they are to being a sustainable and responsible business. In order to make food waste collection as simple as possible Food FWD provides in-house staff training for customers’ team members and staff to learn what can and cannot be considered organic food waste. By providing training on organic/food waste separation Food FWD makes participating in food was diversion easy for its customers. Food FWD also sells EcoSafe™ compostable serviceware to decrease the volume of landfill bound waste, simplify in-house sorting processes, and give customers the knowledge that they are being good stewards of the environment. Customers can order EcoSafe™ products at a discounted rate through a Food FWD representative and have them delivered straight to the store.
