Compass signs Government Food Waste Pledge


“We are delighted to be a signatory of the Government’s Step up to the Plate Food Waste pledge. As the UK’s largest food and support services provider, we not only have a responsibility but also an opportunity to make a real difference in the fight against food waste, and tackling food waste sits at the forefront of our sustainability agenda.”

Chris Garside, Managing Director, Compass Group UK & Ireland


The Food Waste pledge - Step up to the Plate asks attendees to reduce food waste by setting a target to halve food waste by 2030, in line with UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3, as well as adopting the Wrap and IGD Food Waste Reduction Roadmap to have half of all 250 of the UK’s largest food businesses measuring, reporting and acting on food waste by 2019, and to embrace a Food Conversation week of action in November 2019.
