WRAP - The Hospitality and Food Service Agreement (HaFSA)

Tags: waste | food | wrap | hospitality | agreement


Research by WRAP indicates that more than 1.3 billion meals are wasted annually in UK’s hospitality and food service sector. Food waste costs the UK HaFS sector an estimated £2.5 billion in 2011, and this will rise to nearly £3 billion by 2016 if no action is taken. A 5% reduction in food waste equates to a sector-level saving of £250 million over two years. The Hospitality and Food Service Agreement is a voluntary agreement funded by all four nation’s governments to support the sector in reducing waste and recycling more. The Agreement is flexible to allow any size of organisation to sign up, from multi-national companies to smaller businesses, from sector wholesalers/distributors to trade bodies.
