Loopcycle digital platform joins UKHospitality, aiming to support its community by innovating equipment management and recovery through traceability. Loopcycle connects an ecosystem of businesses across the foodservice equipment supply chain to help improve operational efficiency, sustainability and facilitate adaptation to the new circular economy standard, in line with the UK and EU government plans.
Having started in the catering equipment manufacturing industry in 2021, working with brands including Ecofast Environmental UK Ltd, Electrolux Professional UK & Ireland and operators in the education and healthcare sectors, Loopcycle is confident that joining UKHospitality will consolidate their growing network.
Loopcycle’s Co-Founder & CEO Lugano Kapembwa says “Loopcycle connects operators with manufacturers and suppliers to help them share the best equipment care practice beyond warranty period, make better purchasing decisions and prevent unnecessary expenses. While our marketplace feature lets you get the most out of unneeded equipment, and the income made can be reinvested elsewhere in the business. We are excited to be involved with UKHospitality and further deepen our understanding of the challenges facing operators in managing their assets.”
Kate Nicholls OBE, Chief Executive, UKHospitality:
“Sustainability is a top priority for our operators, and they are seeking the most innovative technologies that will enable them to make further reductions to their carbon footprint, on the road to carbon neutral. We are therefore delighted to welcome Loopcycle as members, and the value that the platform will provide in enabling our operators to manage their assets in more commercially efficient and environmentally sustainable way.”
