UK Food Waste Redistribution Increases By 50%: WRAP

UK-based sustainability campaign group WRAP has released a report that reveals that food waste redistribution from retailers, manufacturers and hospitality and food services businesses increased by 50% in just two years.

The total value of the food redistributed in 2017 was almost £130 million, following a £40 million increase from 2015 to 2017.

"I am very pleased to see the increase in redistribution from 2015 to 2017, and that the manufacturing sector, in particular, is making a significant contribution to the overall achievement," commented Helen Munday, chief scientific officer, Food and Drink Federation (FDF).
