Food Waste Pyramid

For businesses

A third of the world’s food is wasted and we all have a role in solving this problem. In the UK surveys suggest that around 80% of customers want businesses to tackle food waste.

By signing up to the Food Waste Pyramid, food businesses can highlight positive initiatives to reduce food waste and promote practical solutions that save resources by avoiding unwanted surpluses, diverting surplus food to charities or livestock feed and avoiding landfill. The Food Waste Pyramid also shows the simple steps that businesses can take to tackle food waste, in order of priority.
