The main messages are to reduce the shocking amount of food UK consumers throw away each week, and to reduce meat and dairy consumption, but it is quite complicated! Sarah recommends these resources to get you started:

STOPPING FOOD WASTE

Annual food waste from UK households, hospitality and food service, food manufacture and the retail and wholesale sectors amounts to around 12 million tonnes, valued at more than £19 billion.  For every two tonnes we eat, another tonne is wasted.

WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme) was set up in 2000 to promote sustainable waste management. “To safeguard UK food we need a step-change to increase sustainable food and drink production and consumption, conserve resources and combat climate change”. Dr Richard Swannell, Director of WRAP sustainable food systems.

Open Kitchen Manchester is a fantastic organisation…if you need catering for work or for a party, contact them….they convert food that would otherwise go to waste into delicious meals at a very reasonable cost that they deliver to your door. https://www.openkitchenmcr.co.uk/
