Marc Zornes

CEO & Co-Founder


Marc Zornes was a former top-rated McKinsey Engagement Manager where he was a leader in the consumer and sustainability practices. While at McKinsey, Marc co-authored the McKinsey Global Institute Report on Resource Revolution. Food waste emerged as one of the biggest resource issues globally – so why was so little being done about it?

Marc left McKinsey to found Winnow in 2013, identifying a critical opportunity to help the hospitality sector cut food waste using technology. Winnow builds artificial intelligence tools to help chefs run more profitable and sustainable kitchens by cutting food waste in half. Since launching in 2013, Winnow has been deployed in 77 countries and has saved its customers over $50m by reducing food waste. Clients include global brands like IKEA, Iberostar, ISS, and Hilton.
