Our commitment is to reduce our Food Waste by 60% by 2030, measured against our Base Year of 2018/19 - this exceeds the industry target of a 50% reduction in the same period. In the past year, our total food handled has increased by >700 tonnes and our internal controls have maintained our food waste at around 0.5%.
Aquascot is part of the industry-wide “Food Waste Reduction Roadmap” led by IGD (Institute of Grocery Distribution) & WRAP (Waste and Resources Action Programme), helping the UK food industry achieve the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goal 12.3 to halve food waste by 2030. In our first full year of reporting, we have achieved a significant reduction in our food waste of almost 50%, and our target for 2020/2021 is to achieve a further 10% reduction.
