WHAT elePlate DOES

ELEVATING OUR COMMUNITIES THROUGH THE FOOD ON OUR PLATES​

Our core service is the elePlate certification, which we provide to companies that work with us to successfully turn their kitchens into zero food waste operations. 

We assess current practices, input solutions from our menu of collaborators focused on specific segments of the sustainability pipeline, and then re-evaluate their practices on an ongoing basis. We partner with food businesses to improve their food storage, optimizing what they can use while ensuring whatever they can’t is rescued and donated in a timely fashion.

This certification is consumer-facing, increasing customer awareness of the food sustainability issue while empowering them to make more informed choices about where to spend their money. 

Our primary goal is to provide healthy food to people in need by empowering organizations to close the gap between sustainability and financial strength.

Proceeds from our certification program are used to fund the logistics required to scale those efforts.rtn

HOW elePlate WORKS

we create customized solutions that work within your existing kitchen operations

Source reduction

We use data, analysis, and equipment to reduce your purchasing costs and utility bills while increasing labor efficiency.

Food Donation

We enable your excess edible food to become meals for people in need within your community. Our partners receive unlimited free donations. We handle the logistics and provide audit-proof tax deductions.

Food recycling

We repurpose the rest of your excess food into renewable forms of energy, preventing it from reaching landfill.

THE elePlate CERTIFICATE

zero food waste

It all culminates with us certifying your kitchen as a zero food waste operation, which we help you promote.

Once you’re certified, you’re in. You’ll become a member of the elePlate community, which entitles you to quarterly consultations – ensuring the validity of your certificate for consumers – and a number of other money-saving and community-boosting benefits.
