Better Bankside, is proud to be a supporting partner of the Guardians of Grub campaign, a collaborative initiative run by WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme), as Food Waste Action Week 2024 kicks off in March.

1.1 million tonnes of food is thrown away by the hospitality and food service industry each year, which equates to 18% of the food purchased. This has a huge impact on the environment and WRAP’s goal is to halve this by 2030.

By galvanising Bankside’s hospitality and event venues, Better Bankside is raising awareness of this amazing campaign through free resources and training. There are a host of resources including cost saving calculators, free 15 minute cost savings skills courses, smart menu planning guides, handy checklists, inspirational posters for staff, bin labels, stock control sheets and much more. This not only helps our member businesses reduce food waste and save money, but also provides a network of support to for the industry to come together.

Food Waste Action Week 2024 will be encouraging Banksiders to ‘Choose What You’ll Use’. Find out more about Guardians of Grub and their 2024 campaign.
