The positive returns from cutting food waste

Graham Watson

14th February 2019

A lovely article that highlights how tackling food waste in restaurants could generate significant returns for those companies that look to tackle the issue.

It looks at how simple measures - like weighing the amount of food waste has had an impact on the amount of edible food being disposed of, as well as highlighting the scale of the problem: "In the UK alone almost 900,000 perfectly edible, freshly prepared meals end up in the bin every day because they haven’t been sold in time by restaurants and cafes."
