Food waste is often in the headlines. The sheer volume of wasted food has drawn attention, but the debate has also focused on how to measure it, the cost to business and the best means of reducing the amount of waste created.

A recent report, 'An overview of food waste in the Hospitality sector', authored by Oakdene Hollins and commissioned by WRAP, established that the cost of food waste in the UK hospitality and food service industry is £2.5 billion each year, and is rising. The report also showed that there are significant opportunities across the whole hospitality and food service sector to reduce costs by tackling food waste.

We work closely with businesses to provide the essential information and guidance that will help them better manage their resources, and recoup some of the money currently spent on often needless waste.
