The buffet system - very popular in India - for the reason that we all know, you can take all you want. In order to not waste the amount of food that is being wasted currently, the want has to shift to need.
What happens when we see a buffet is that we tend to overestimate the amount of food we can, and even want, to eat and end up taking a lot on a plate and eventually throwing most of it in the dustbin.
What startled me is that at a wedding, where there are typically around 300-500 people, this overestimation of food becomes a huge problem. and that's just one wedding.
What can be a part of a solution for this problem? :
- Intuitively designed wedding cutlery in order to limit the amount of servings each person takes.
- Culture of no-waste weddings.
- Change/Shift in the existence of the buffet system.
