Food waste is an end-to-end challenge that requires end-to-end solutions. WRAP and IGD are inviting businesses to participate in whole chain food waste reduction plans (WCPs) – working together across the supply chain to take joint actions that reduce farm to fork food waste. WCPs form a key deliverable of the Food Waste Reduction Roadmap. Supporters of the Roadmap have committed to Target, Measure, Act to reduce their own food waste, work in partnership with suppliers, and help consumers.
