Food Waste Reduction Roadmap

A ground-breaking, industry-wide roadmap and toolkit

In 2018 WRAP and IGD led an industry-wide programme of work developing a roadmap for how the UK food industry will help achieve UN Sustainable Development Goal 12.3, consulting widely with businesses, trade bodies and others from agriculture, production and manufacture, retail and hospitality and food service.

    Roadmap logos
    The UK's largest retailers, food producers, manufacturers, and hospitality and food service companies have committed to milestones laid out in the Food Waste Reduction Roadmap, developed by IGD and WRAP to tackle food waste in the UK. To accompany the Roadmap and Toolkit there is a range of guidance and templates to help businesses to 'Target, Measure and Act' on food waste.

    Key benefits:

    • Allows businesses to measure and report consistently, and with confidence;
    • Helps food businesses take targeted action to reduce waste in their own operations, their supply chain and from consumers;
    • Helps the food sector deliver against the Courtauld Commitment 2030 targets; and
    • Helps the UK play its part in delivering the UN's Sustainable Development Goal 12.3.
