97% of plastic bottles recycled

An industry-led scheme in Norway is credited with increasing plastic bottle recycling levels to 97 per cent. Consumers pay a small additional charge on each bottle they buy. When the bottle is returned either to the shop or a recycling machine, the deposit is refunded. Shops are given a small handling fee for taking the returned bottles. Recycling machines – often found in supermarkets – read the barcodes of the bottles and usually offer customers vouchers for the shop, or the option of making a charitable donation. www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/uk-plastic-bottle-recycling-system-norway-adopt-ocean-pollution-latest-news-a8198761.html

A platform that connects food producers with the public

A startup in the UK called farmdrop delivers fresh food of your choice within 19 hours. This offer is different because all food is sustainably sourced, you can choose the producer, the producer gets the majority of the price rather than a supermarket and delivery is by all electric vans -which can be within one hour intervals. https://www.farmdrop.com/

Fine dining with kids

Nibble+squeak hosts dining events for babies, toddlers, and young children. Their mission is to get new parents out, dining at restaurants they loved pre-kids. Their events are part of a broader effort to create more spaces in society where little ones are welcome and parents can relax. Since the events tend to take place either in a private room or before the restaurant opens to the public, they are an attractive proposition to restaurants because they provide a new source of revenue. www.fastcompany.com/40524680/this-startup-wants-to-make-dining-out-with-a-toddler-less-of-a-nightmare

Cake slice serving plate

A new plate design could solve the problem of cake slices breaking and falling down. There is often a problem of serving cake slices after cutting a cake. A lot of cake is left behind on the plate at the time of serving cake slices. This problem could be solved with a triangle shaped slicing template than slides down to cut and stays in place as each cake slice is removed and served.

Facial recognition for more personalised service

The faces of customers at Sydney’s Bahista Cafe are scanned by an iPad as they approach the barista at the coffee machine. Instantly the customer’s name, favourite order and whether they are due for a loyalty reward flashes up on another iPad facing staff. Business at the cafe has significantly increased following introduction of this new service. http://www.smh.com.au/small-business/smallbiz-tech/facial-recognition-with-your-takeaway-coffee-20171221-h08qb5.html

GPS meal tracker

4BC22CA8-1B85-4868-BF0B-282F84749E33

The Coogee Pavilion restaurant, a large and crowded venue, uses a GPS tracker on the table number to find us and deliver our order. We sat back and relaxed a long way from where we placed our order knowing that the cheerful staff would find us using the meal tracker. A great customer – centric idea using technology.

Cups made from coffee

Huskee coffee cups (1)

Coffee husks have no nutrient value so it doesn’t make sense to mix them with other organic materials for composting. Instead of throwing them away a new use has been found for them. The new Huskee cups are a three-in-one solution – they cross the boundaries between a dine-in ceramic cup, a takeaway cup, and a reusable cup. They have a universal saucer and lid that fit all sizes in the range. While the cups, lids, and saucers are recyclable they are also dishwasher-safe, so they can be reused and ultimately replace takeaway cups. https://www.huskee.co/
