The food and drink industry is one of the major sectors in the UK and makes a significant contribution to national and regional economies. The sector produces a large amount of waste compared to other industries and it faces increasing demands to improve resource efficiency and environmental performance through European legislation and policy and UK waste strategy. Waste minimisation is considered to be one of the best approaches for improving sustainability performance in industry, including for the food and drink industry, as it achieves environmental, economic and social benefits by reducing waste at source, achieving cost savings and creating new employment opportunities.
