Helping the sector become more sustainable

Sustainability in primary production is a key focus area for WRAP, and there are many opportunities for farmers and growers to work with us on collaborative solutions to reduce food waste, water stress and greenhouse gas emissions.

What is WRAP doing?

Tackling food surplus and waste

Food surplus and waste can arise on-farm for a range of reasons such as weather damage, pest damage, over production, reduced orders and quality requirements.

WRAP's research has highlighted the significant financial, environmental and efficiency benefits of tackling food waste in primary production.
