Enabling effective decisions for tackling food surplus and waste on farm.

At an industry level, food surplus and waste on-farms across the UK is estimated at 3.6 million tonnes and worth £1.2 billion. This project has extended that assessment to provide an estimate of the financial implications for individuals farms of acting on food surplus and waste.

Modelled on standard industry data and validated by leading industry figures, the analysis shows a potential 20% increase in profits for farm enterprises if food surplus and waste is reduced to the minimum reported rates.

The project was supported by CAFRE and DAERA.
