The food waste crisis

Untreated food left to rot in landfill sites is a significant source of methane, a gas which has 21 times the global warming potential of carbon dioxide. UK food waste represents 20% of Great Britain’s Green House Gas. Growing and transporting the food that goes to waste creates as much carbon pollution as 39 million passenger vehicles.

The role of hospitality

The role of hospitality

No matter how effectively you manage your supply chain and logistics if you serve food you will be creating food waste that needs to be dealt with. And, unless its effectively processed, every kilo of food waste will produce 6 litres of harmful methane gas.

Changes to regulations in England, following those already made in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, mean that food waste will soon need to be separated and stored ready for collection, unless processed in an approved manner. Ecofast can help to ensure that your business is compliant and avoids any legal or financial penalties.

Recycling commercial waste

How you can recycle commercial waste

If you prevent over purchasing you will naturally produce less waste AND create more profit. Whilst portion control may not be as effective in a restaurant as it is in a school, limiting plated food waste would help to tackle 34% of the average food establishment’s overall food waste.

We know that no matter how hard you try there will always be food waste. But turning this into a useable by-product has never been easier. Commercial composting solutions and food waste reduction equipment can easily reduce the cost of commercial food waste collections whilst supporting the government’s waste to energy policy.
