That’s a question posed by WRAP – The Waste and Resources Action Programme.
It’s simple – reducing the amount of food your manufacturing business throws away makes sense. Food waste takes many forms, yet it all has a value.
According to WRAP – The UK food manufacturing sector throws away nearly 1 million tonnes of food a year. It’s waste that could have been prevented, and it’s worth a staggering £1.2 billion.
Reducing the amount of food – and profits – thrown away is easier than you might think.
Your Business is Food; don’t throw it away is a campaign developed by WRAP under the Courtauld Commitment 2025 voluntary agreement, with support from food industry partners.
Your Business is Food; don’t throw it away offers practical guidance to food manufacturing businesses, enabling measurement and management food waste with a straightforward three-step process:
- Step 1: Review the food you throw away.
- Step 2: Make an action plan.
- Step 3: Keep it going!
By using the Starter guide it offers you practical guidance and simple approaches that will help your business to monitor, measure, and take action on food waste, including links to all of the resources and tools developed to simplify the process.
