The proposal explains that n-1 ordering mode means that 10 dining guests only order 9 dishes, which is not enough to add more dishes, so as to ensure that customers eat well, and at the same time, eliminate food waste from the source.

a staff member of Wuhan Catering Industry Association told Red Star News reporters that the “CD action” of n-1 ordering mode, ordering half dishes and small dishes has been implemented in Wuhan catering industry since 2013. Many restaurant waiters will remind how many dishes to order according to the number of guests. If it is not enough, they can order again.

It’s not what they said that eating for 10 people can only order 9 dishes.” The above-mentioned staff said that after the proposal was issued, there were some negative comments on the Internet, mainly because they didn’t read the contents carefully. At present, many restaurants have responded positively and implemented them.

Liu Guoliang, President of Wuhan catering industry association, said in an interview with the media that the turnover of Wuhan catering industry in 2012 was about 50 billion yuan, of which the average waste rate was 30%, and the highest wastage rate was 50%. At that time, a large number of food and beverage waste behavior, which brought about environmental pollution, sewage blockage, the increase of gutter oil and other negative results, also brought about the youth do not know how to save, waste normal, good face bad influence.

Liu Guoliang said that through the promotion of “CD action” in recent years, by the end of 2019, Wuhan’s catering waste behavior has significantly improved, and the average waste rate has dropped to 10%. “At present, in Wuhan restaurants, the phenomenon of waste still exists, but not as much as before 2013.” Liu Guoliang said.

according to the above-mentioned staff, the catering industry in Wuhan has actively responded to the call of the state. First, the catering industry should undertake certain social responsibilities, earnestly cultivate the habit of saving, and create a social atmosphere of waste, shame and glory in saving in the whole society; second, the “CD-ROM action” has already had a certain foundation in Wuhan’s catering industry, which needs to be further strengthened and consolidated; third, when the epidemic broke out, Wuhan was affected Therefore, Wuhan catering industry should play a leading role.

as to whether the “CD action” initiative will affect the catering industry, the above-mentioned staff members said that it will not have a great impact, because the catering industry only guides customers to consume, and how customers spend depends on their own will.

on August 11, after Wuhan Catering Industry Association issued six proposals to Wuhan catering industry, Hujin restaurant made “civilized table, CD action” Yilabao, Taiwan card and publicity signs overnight to promote in the restaurant.

Ms. Yang, the person in charge of Hujin restaurant, told Red Star news that Hujin restaurant was founded in 1994 and now has eight stores. As a well-known local catering enterprise in Wuhan, they must actively respond to the call of the state and the association and reasonably guide guests to dine.

“it’s good for consumers and businesses.” Ms. Yang said that several years ago, restaurants had begun to publicize the “CD-ROM campaign”. The order takers matched the dishes reasonably according to the needs of customers, controlled the quantity of dishes according to the number of customers, and finally packed them when they could not finish eating.

Ms. Yang said frankly that for some stores, the “CD action” may affect the turnover in the short term, but to be an enterprise and a brand, we should take a long-term view, not just look at the income of one or two months.

Mr. Hu, the owner of another Chinese restaurant in Wuhan, told Red Star news that currently the Catering Association has not released relevant documents to the store. They only saw the proposal in the official wechat. Some of them have already started to implement the “CD-ROM action”. The other part that has not been implemented is being studied and implemented in the next step. HEALTHY LIFE
