The Fairmont Hotel, a 5 star hotel located in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, does an interesting thing with their left over food for the local stray dogs.
The hotel itself uses the freshest ingredients everyday in the food they provide their customers, and any leftovers at the end of the day used to be tossed out as trash. The head chef, a gentleman named J. Gourmet, thought this was wasteful, and instead have opted to turn the leftovers into dog food for the local shelter instead.
I can see a tray of hamburger sliders on the bottom of the cart in the picture above.
The sushi looks good. I’d have no problem eating them even if they are a day old.
They don’t just toss the leftovers to the dogs and call it a day. Sauces, cheese, sweets/desserts as well as spices/condiments are all removed from the leftovers. Mainly the meat, rice, bread and vegetables are saved to be minced and mixed as dog food.
Roughly only 30 kg of dog food can be produced from 100 kg of leftovers, given how much of the aforementioned ingredients they remove.
