Valuing Food and Food safety

Valuing Food and Food safety

WRAP ran an awareness session for food safety processionals in May 2018 to introduce the tried and tested ‘Your Business is Food, don't throw it away’ resources which help food businesses reduce the amount of food they throw away, thereby saving money and boosting profits.

  • Nearly 75% of all food that is thrown out by the UK’s Hospitality and Food Service Sector is food that could have been eaten.
  • The value of this food waste costs the sector £2.9 billion per year.
  • Average saving of £10,000 per outlet from identifying where food is wasted and implementing low or no cost measures.

Industry experts and guests shared the benefits and practicalities of ‘Your Business is Food, don’t throw it away’ from an environmental health practitioner’s perspective, demonstrating how food waste prevention measures can be combined with food safety messages.

The session was recorded and the video modules can be accessed from the TRiFOCAL resource bank.
