Winnow  launched on Friday 22 of march its new AI-enabled product, Winnow Vision, to revolutionize food management in commercial kitchens for the benefit of both businesses and future generations. Using a camera, a set of smart scales and the same type of machine learning technology found in autonomous vehicles, Winnow Vision ‘learns’ to recognise different foods being thrown in the bin and calculates the financial and environment cost of this discarded food to commercial kitchens. Businesses and chefs can then adjust their food purchasing decisions accordingly, reducing their spending and tackling a fundamental problem of food waste: overproduction.

Helping hospitality businesses to reduce the issue of food waste is in the DNA of Winnow. They are driven as a team to tackle food waste and have a clear vision of how to do it. They are building a future kitchen that is highly efficient, sustainable and ensures that food ends up where it is supposed to. read more

The grey cobblestone streets and stately canal houses of Amsterdam; they are far from the sandy beaches, palm trees and ferocious pirates we associate with rum. Nevertheless, it was under the Dutch rain where the Spirited Union Distillery and its Union55 rum were created. In 2015, Ruben Maduro found himself fed up with the sickly sweet and artificial flavors in his beloved (spiced) rums. “I travelled all over the world as a brand ambassador, bartender and trainer. And one thing struck me: The lack of innovation in rum.” One and a half year later, in early 2017, an experiment had evolved into an uncategorized rum. A botanically infused one.. read more
