Compass Group UK signs government pledge to halve food waste

We are so proud of Compass Group UK for the leading the charge on the government call to action to reduce food waste in half throughout the United Kingdom.

"More than 100 of the biggest players in food signed this pledge to take ground-breaking action to drive down food waste following a call to action from the government. Currently, in the UK an estimated 10.2 million tonnes of food and drink are wasted annually after leaving the farm gate, worth around £20 billion. It is estimated that UK householders spend £15 billion every year on food that could have been eaten but ends up being thrown away, equating to £500 a year for the average household."

"The government is committed to supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal 12.3 to help halve food waste by 2030, report on progress and prioritize action."
