Once you have gathered the relevant information on food waste in your business, what can you do about it? A number of different management hierarchies have been proposed but all agree: Prevention at source is always the best option.

  • Save money at all stages of the food cycle within your business
  • Reduce environmental impacts associated with the food cycle
  • Improve the social performance of your business
