Taste Not Waste
Our current food system has taken millions from starvation and brought us a previously unimaginable range of food stuffs from across the world, but it is not perfect: from the scourge of food poverty – a 2014 study estimated 8.4 million people in the UK are ‘food insecure’ – to food waste – approximately one-third of all food produced in the world is lost or wasted. The vision of the Cambridge Food Hub is to create a local food system that does things differently.
Launching our new brand and website!
Around one million tonnes of food are thrown away by UK hospitality and food businesses each year. That is equivalent to 18% of all food purchased in that sector, or one in six meals served, ending in the bin! In fact, three quarters of food wasted is still edible, meaning current practices waste precious natural resources and divert good food away from those in need.
What would happen if we stood by and did nothing?
