Guardians of Grub is a food waste reduction campaign to tackle the £3bn of food thrown away at hospitality and food service outlets. The campaign is aimed at empowering professionals from across the hospitality and food service sector to reduce the amount of food thrown away in their establishments.
There is an ever-growing threat that is wreaking havoc on our world. It’s devastating the climate and putting our planet in peril. One million tonnes of food we prepare in the hospitality & food service sector is thrown away; 75% of this could have been eaten. This costs our industry a staggering £2.9 billion each year. And that’s not all. When our food waste ends up in landfill, it emits greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change.
That’s why a group of everyday heroes from across the industry is working together to fight food waste. To join the movement and rise up against food waste, download the resources below, a collection of essential tools to measure and reduce food waste within your business:
