A wide UK voluntary agreement has been recently launched by WRAP and is signed by 73 leading UK in hospitality and food service section

A Voluntary Agreement

Hospitality and Food Service agreement is a voluntary agreement, which was developed with industry and UK, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland governments. The agreement builds on WRAP’s research, and work already being undertaken by the sector to tackle waste. It also delivers on all four governments’ commitment to tackle waste and carbon. Government support from the UK nations for the voluntary agreement has also been wide scale with fourteen UK government departments, Scottish, and Welsh governments all signing up to the agreement to encourage their own caterers to cut waste.


WRAP's Research
There is an estimation on this research, saying that over 3.4 million tonnes (mt) of mixed waste (typically food, glass, paper and card) is produced by hotels, pubs, restaurants and quick service restaurants (QSRs) each year. Of this, 1.6 mt (48 per cent) is recycled, reused or composted, while almost 1.5 mt (43 per cent) is thrown away, mainly to landfill. Furthermore, 600,000 tonnes of food waste was disposed of in 2009, two-thirds of which (400,000 tonnes) could have been eaten if it had been better portioned, managed, stored and/or prepared.

WRAP is an organisation helping people recycle more and waste less, both at home and at work, and offers economic as well as environmental benefits. It also helps governments devise strategies to deal with these issues through its expertise, research and practical advice. Wrap's vision is a world without waste, where resources are used sustainably. It runs programs in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Agreement's Vision

The agreement aims to cut food and associated packaging waste by 5% (a CO2e reduction of 234,000 tonnes), the equivalent of approximately 100 million meals. It also aims to increase the overall rate of food and packaging waste that is being recycled, sent to AD or composted to 70% (a CO2e reduction of 336,000 tonnes).

Financial Benefits for Companies

Sector can cut carbon impact of food and associated packaging waste by 5% target. They can increase the overall rate of food and packaging waste that is being recycled, sent to AD or composted to 70%. Signatories can together expect to achieve great cost savings. Indeed, if just 25% of the sector were to sign up, they can save up to £76 million by the end of 2015, and reduce their CO2 (e) impact by 570,000 tonnes.
