Rise up against food waste

WASTED FOOD IS COSTING OUR INDUSTRY £3.2 BILLION A YEAR, AND 75% OF THE FOOD WASTED COULD HAVE BEEN EATEN.

Wasted food eating into your profits? The Guardians of Grub are here to help you rise up against the 1.1 million tonnes of food thrown away by the Hospitality and Food Service industry every year. So, take a stand against wasted food. Help your business, the environment and the community by using our Guardians of Grub Cost Saving Calculator to find out how much money you could save.

WASTED FOOD DOESN’T JUST COST MONEY, IT IS TAKING A TOLL ON OUR PLANET TOO.

On average, 18% of the food purchased by the UK Hospitality and Food Service sector is being thrown away, and for every gram of food that ends up in the bin there is an environmental cost. The production of every pea, potato and slice of bread releases CO2e into the atmosphere, and that problem is only made worse when that food ends up in the bin. In fact, if food waste were a country, it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases after China and the US. So, let’s unite in the fight against food waste, for our bottom lines and for the good of our planet.
