Prepared on behalf of Champions 12.3, a new report finds a compelling business case for action on food waste prevention in the catering industry.
- The first-of-its-kind analysis for the industry found caterers saved $6 for every $1 invested in reducing food waste.
- Around 80% were able to keep their total investment in food waste reduction to below $10,000
- 64% had recouped their investment within just one year
Food loss and waste: a global challenge
We have made great progress, particularly in the business sector, in building reduction of food waste into its DNA. But there is still a lot of work to do if we are going to reach the UN SDG 12.3 target to halve food waste by 2030. This report is yet more compelling proof for business that you can provide great customer service, and a great customer experience, while reducing costs and the impact of food waste on the environment.
