China's restaurants are ramping up well on fighting food waste in resturants.
According to a report in chinadaily.com.cn
"We have tried to stop the wasting of food since 2006," said Lin Suqin, the manager of the capital's Hongbinlou restaurant."For example, if customers want to order a large portion of a dish when there are fewer than six people at the table, the waiter must ask the foreman to check the customers' real needs before they order, to avoid waste."
The restaurant now offers dishes half the size of those served normally.
To enhance public awareness of food waste, the restaurant chain run by the Beijing Meizhou Hotel Management has placed posters on walls to remind customers to take away their leftovers, and it offers environmentally friendly containers for the food to be packed in.
The campaign comes after legal and agricultural experts said that wasting food should be a crime."I am proposing that the government makes regulations and policies to encourage people to despise the wasting of food, and to treat it like a crime", said Yuan Longping, an agricultural scientist."
Awareness and effective enforcement is the key!
