Developing new UK recycling solutions
The global food sector is responsible for over one third of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.1
To help tackle climate change, we need to change how we produce food.
Food supply chains are complex and we need to work with others to make this change happen.
27% of the global workforce makes a living from agriculture.2
How we farm, catch and produce food affects the livelihoods of millions as well as the environment.
Responsible and sustainable food production practices are better for people and the planet.
The 2021 Driven To Waste Report suggests that 40% of food is uneaten.
Everyone has a part to play in stopping food waste.
We work with suppliers, communities and customers to make sure good food is never wasted.
