WRAP and UK food businesses have agreed some common guidelines for measuring and reporting on food surplus and waste, consistent with the global Food Loss and Waste Accounting and Reporting Standard (FLW Standard).

These have been produced in support of the UK Food Waste Reduction Roadmap – to help the UK meet the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12.3 and Courtauld Commitment 2030 target to halve food waste by 2030.

This document should be used in conjunction with the wider UK Guidelines. It provides additional recommendations for dairy processing businesses, based on the specific operational considerations and challenges relevant to this sector. A key challenge for dairy processors is the need to account in a consistent way for very dilute or very concentrated waste streams.
