Food waste recycling service
According to the Waste Resources and Action Programme (WRAP), around 9.2 million tonnes of food waste was created in 2018. Almost 70% of this is thrown away each year, although vast majorities of this could have been reused or even eaten!
Reconomy’s expert team can help identify food waste reduction at each stage of the value chain. We can help with improved processes to reduce food waste at both strategic and operational levels and propose new ways of working, including closed-loop opportunities and circular economy principles.
What is food waste?
“Food waste” can be defined by any food discarded, either edible or inedible that has been consciously disposed of and recovered from either pre-production, food production, supply chain or consumer phases of waste creation.
Food waste can be a complicated waste stream, like most there are a lot of protocols that regulate what can be done with the waste. A lot of food we may consider to be waste, may not be waste at all and could potentially go back into agriculture. Whether this be as a natural compost, fertilizer for farmlands & crops, or as an animal feed.Get in touch
The Impact of Food Waste
Food waste is a pressing global issue with significant environmental, social, and economic consequences. When food is wasted, valuable resources such as water, energy, and land are squandered.
Furthermore, decomposing food waste in landfills produces harmful greenhouse gases, contributing to climate change. By addressing food waste, we can make a positive impact on the environment and create a more efficient food system.Get in touch
