Food types

Introduction

The resources available under the Courtauld Commitment 2025, the Food Waste Reduction Roadmap and Guardians of Grub are applicable to all food types, as reducing the waste of all food is critical to achieving UK and international targets.

However, much of WRAP's work focusses on the food types where we can have the most impact in reducing food waste, reducing water stress and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

We build the evidence and work with food and drink business to enable them to take targeted action.
