The major supermarkets + tons of other brands pledge to reduce food waste by 20% by 2025

The major supermarkets + tons of other brands pledge to reduce food waste by 20% by 2025

Waste and Resources Action Programme (Wrap) have launched a voluntary agreement that 98 organisations have agreed to, 93% of the grocery market have signed the 10-year agreement

WRAP said the agreement – Courtauld phase 4 – would see the resource intensity of the UK’s food and drink fall by one-fifth, bringing an estimated £20 billion savings to the UK economy.

Annual food waste from UK households, hospitality and food service, food manufacture and the retail and wholesale sectors amounts to around 12 million tonnes, 75 per cent of which could have been avoided, according to studies by Wrap.

Wrap estimates the agreement, called the Courtauld Commitment 2025, will save the UK economy around £20 billion and put the country on track to meet the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal to halve food waste by retailers and consumers by 2030.

Didn’t this happen previously?

Yes and the numbers increased instead of decreased!

 

Do you think the food wastage numbers will increase or decrease?

Dr Richard Swannell, director of sustainable food systems at Wrap, said:

“To safeguard UK food we need a step-change to increase sustainable food and drink production and consumption, conserve resources and combat climate change. Courtauld 2025 will do this.

“This is an ambitious undertaking and having key signatories on board on day one puts us in a strong position at the start of this new era for our food industry.”

Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) minister Rory Stewart said:

“Food waste – at any stage from the farm to the house – is something we should avoid. It wastes precious water and resources. So I am delighted that this great group of food and drink companies has come together with Wrap to reduce our food waste.

“Under the last framework we have already reduced food waste in the supply chain by 10%. And this team-work and leadership should allow us to go much further.”
