The WRAP website and its consumer-facing Love Food Hate Waste campaign website are excellent sources of food waste data and summary statistics.

This section signposts key reports and web pages that will be helpful to those looking for data to help with preparing waste prevention communication materials, with the implementation of new prevention activities and with planning further research.

Below, we highlight good sources of data and summary statistics relating to food waste.
