In the UK there is 10 million tonnes of food wasted every year while 8.4 million people struggle with food insecurity.
Around 40% of this waste ends up in landfill where it produces methane with a global warming potential 21 times stronger than carbon dioxide.
This event is relevant for every type of organisation including offices, restaurants and shops.
Whether it’s turning your office waste coffee grounds into biofuel, redistributing your unused quality food or having a dedicated food waste bin in your kitchen there is something for everyone to take on board.
Hear from a panel of guest speakers on innovative ways your organisation can stop sending foodstuffs to landfill.
- Borough Market: Practical insights into food recycling from a business perspective
