UK food giants from Tesco to Nestle aim to halve waste by 2030

UK food giants from Tesco to Nestle aim to halve waste by 2030 | Marketing Research Tends | Scoop.it

Major supermarkets, food manufacturers and restaurants on Tuesday backed a drive to halve Britain's food waste by 2030 and save the nation at least 10 billion pounds ($13 billion) a year. Tesco, Nestle and Coca-Cola were among at least 70 leading companies to sign up to a government-backed plan to cut the amount of food that is wasted annually in Britain - estimated to be about 10 million tonnes to the value of 20 billion pounds. Food waste is increasing viewed as unethical in a world of rising hunger, as well as environmentally destructive, dumped in landfills where it rots, releasing greenhouse gases, while fuel, water, and energy needed to grow, store and carry it is wasted. "Crucially, these companies are committing to halving food waste from farm to fork by 2030, including waste in supply chains and not just the lower hanging fruit of waste in operations," she told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Great  job by Tesco, Nestle and Coca-Cola!  A Circular Economy could bring 2 million jobs by 2030 and up to €600 billion in savings per year.
