Food waste is off the menu this September, as the UK’s hospitality and food service sector unites to tackle the one million tonnes of food waste arising from commercial kitchens, restaurants, pubs and wherever food is served to order; worth nearly £3 billion per annum.
A dedicated month of action, Stand Up For Food, is underway spearheaded by the resource efficiency agency WRAP as part of its Guardians of Grub campaign.
Celena Fernandez, Head of Environment, Compass Group UK & Ireland “As the UK’s largest food service provider we not only have a responsibility, but an opportunity to make a real difference in the fight against food waste, which is why we’re excited to be supporting this campaign as part of our ongoing work to reduce food waste which is core to our sustainability strategy. Stand Up For Food Month presents a great opportunity to put food waste at the forefront of the hospitality agenda for September, and we hope this will encourage those in the industry to consider food waste in their everyday processes moving forward.”
