Student restaurant Odisee created a unique system (www.himmorant.be) to order all meals in advance. With about 10 500 students of 6 campuses, Odisee is one of the largest education institutions of the Flemish region. Odisee reduce the waste of food and save financially.
At noon, students and employees come almost always at the same time to the restaurant. Normally you would expect a long queue, but because everyone can order in advance, the kitchen doesn’t have to make meals (e.g. wraps, sandwiches, …) at the moment itself. Through pre-orders, the school doesn’t need to guess the amount of meals and food waste is prevented. Moreover, the food that is left from the day before could be processed in the soup the next day!
