Foodservice plan targets action on food waste 

April 16, 2019 EcoVadis ‏‏‎

All foodservice and hospitality companies with over 250 employees should have a food waste target in place and be measuring, reporting and taking action on food waste by 2026, according to a new industry action plan. Developed by WRAP, the Hospitality and Food Service (HaFS) sector Action Plan defines the steps companies must take to help to deliver the UK Food Waste Reduction Roadmap which sets out how the largest retailers, suppliers, and hospitality and food service companies will contribute towards the SDG 12.3 target of a 50% reduction in food waste by 2030.

EcoVadis's insight:

The UK is a global leader in measuring food waste and supporting international food waste prevention projects, since it has been found that hundreds of thousands of tonnes of good food is wasted by the UK food industry every year.

The SDG 12.3:  “By 2030, halve per capita global food waste at the retail and consumer levels and reduce food losses along production and supply chains, including post-harvest losses”
