The Food Waste Challenge

 

WRAP Report Highlights Ongoing Food Waste Challenge

WRAP’s recent report on food waste has highlighted the scale of the challenge we are still facing.

The charity estimates there was a staggering 9.5 million tonnes of food waste from UK households, hospitality and foodservice, food manufacture, retail, and wholesale in 2018. This waste could be associated with as much as 36 million tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.

In the wake of the COP26 conference, businesses are more aware than ever of the drastic action needed to meet the ambitious, but necessary, targets needed to combat climate change. At JG Pears, we believe rendering has a crucial role to play in this fight.
