Huge amount of food get wasted in restaurants and hotels everyday in the national capital. This is a serious concern for a country like India, where  many poor starve to death. To check this wastage, the New Delhi Municipal Council has taken a new technological initiative to convert  organic waste  into compost for agricultural and horticultural use.

Towards this  direction, Union Urban Development Minister M Venkaiah Naidu inaugurated the Solid Waste Management Organic Waste to Compost Process System at Malcha Marg Market on Friday.

This system named as ‘Foodie’ converts all organic waste of hotels and eateries into compost for horticulture and agriculture use.

While addressing the gathering Naidu said, ” I appreciate this new modern technological effort which is also an eco-friendly solution and this project is a step towards Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.”

“It will save the cost of collection, transportation and disposable of waste and will also reduce the landfill space which will contribute in controlling  air and water pollution in Delhi,” he continued.
