Newrest has organized the Hackathon #SAVEFOOD in collaboration with TBS

From June 30th to July 1st, Newrest organized the #SAVEFOOD Hackathon in partnership with the 2017 CPA promotion - Toulouse Business School.

From Friday, June 30th, 6pm to Saturday, July 1st, 6pm, 36 participants have worked very hard in a cheerful and positive atmosphere to innovate around the theme: Fighting food waste in Catering thanks to digital.

The participants were first able to break the ice during games and animations organized by the crazy 2017 CPA promotion.

Following the intervention of the starred Chef Stephane Tournier, the teams were then naturally formed according to the sensibilities of each one on the themes proposed by the organizers. In total 6 teams, SaveDream, les Waste Buster, Fri’GO, Les Poules Alliers, the Choice and Juste l’équipe, started their marathon of innovation at a frantic pace!

After a night of reflection and debates, just the time to take a few minutes for a sporty awakening around the boxing theme framed by La Boxe est dans la Boîte, and the last straight was underway.

lead them to contribute actively to reducing waste:
