Food Waste Stories

who is hafsa anyway?

Yes, it needs a nice acronym. The Hospitality and Foodservice Agreement, as well as being a mouthful to say, contains a huge amount of food for thought. This voluntary agreement, orchestrated by WRAP on behalf of the UK governments, is bringing the foodservice sector together to reduce waste and recycle more.

There are two targets we are working towards:

  • Prevention target: Reduce food and associated packaging waste arising by 5% by the end of 2015. This will be against a 2012 baseline and be measured by CO2e emissions.
  • Waste management target: Increase the overall rate of food and packaging waste being recycled, sent to anaerobic digestion (AD) or composted to at least 70% by the end of 2015. 

The Food Waste Network is a founding supporter, as we know an awful lot about UK food waste recycling. After all, we are mapping all commercial and industrial food waste recycling services by postcode. Our free matchmaking service (enquiry form at recycle my food) is perfect to help the signatories meet the waste management target.
