Hospitality and food service

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 convene hospitality and food service companies and work towards common targets under the Courtauld Commitment and The UK Plastics Pact.

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.

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.

Take action

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.
