Approximately a third of food produced globally, is wasted. In the UK, we create an estimated 15 million tonnes of food waste every year, equating to a massive £3.2billion. 75% of this is food that could have been eaten with proper planning. Not only does wasted food eat into your profits, but it is also contributing to even larger scale problems facing humanity – the climate crisis. According to The Guardians of Grub, if global food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases after China and the US. So what can you and your businesses be doing to negate this, I hear you ask?!
Here we have a panel of industry experts to present on various initiatives and answer your questions including representatives from Brighton & Hove who have become the first in the UK to win a Gold Sustainable Food Places Award. This award recognises the city’s outstanding achievements on a range of key food issues and this Trailblazing Gold Sustainable Food Practices webinar is guaranteed to equip you with the knowledge and tools you need to play your part whichever sector of the industry you work in.
The IoH Sussex Branch are proud to be hosting this event in support of the UK’s first ever Food Waste Action Week, a ground-breaking, cross-industry week of action which starts on 1st March.
