Our areas of work
We work with the hospitality and food service sector in the areas of food and drink and plastics.
WRAP's vision of a world in which resources are used sustainably is central to our work with businesses in these sectors.
Guardians of Grub is our flagship food waste reduction campaign for the sector, and is suitable for all types and sizes of organisation. It includes free tools, guidance, skills development and campaign assets.
We also work with the sector under the UK Food Waste Reduction Roadmap, helping food businesses take targeted action to reduce waste in their own operations, their supply chain and from consumers in support of the UN's Sustainable Development Goal 12.3.
What is WRAP doing?
Guardians of Grub
Our flagship food waste reduction campaign for the sector, for all types and sizes of organisation.
The Courtauld Commitment 2025
Our voluntary agreement helps sector organisations to deliver a more sustainable food system.
Food Waste Reduction Roadmap
The UK's largest retailers, food producers and manufacturers, and hospitality and food service companies have committed to 'Target, Measure, Act' on food waste.
Plastics and Packaging
We understand that plastic packaging plays an important role in the foodservice industry. However, we know that many of the plastic items used in the sector are single use making them problematic. Especially as many are not captured for recycling, finding their way into general waste and into landfill or incineration or even worse, littered, meaning they pollute our natural environment.
The UK Plastics Pact
The UK Plastic Pact has four targets to 2025 each working towards our vision of a world where plastic is valued and doesn’t pollute the environment. Taking actions which work towards these targets and embedding sustainable practices into your operation is the best thing you can do to tackle plastic waste in your business.
