We’ll share our 20+ years of knowledge on commercial food waste through relationships across the supply chain.
Normandy Waste Management Systems was created by a food waste recycling company, Feed Commodities, LLC, with over twenty years of experience in the food processing industry. Our team has substantial knowledge on the value lost when ingredients are diverted from their primary market into the by-product market.
Designed to capture and streamline waste data, Normandy WMS hardware and software services have integrated into dozens of food production facility systems. The growth of Normandy WMS is the result of our trusted partnerships. Plant operators, haulers, food safety teams, auditors and accountants need ONE practical food waste tracking solution.
