Taste Not Waste


Taste not waste is funded by Cambridge City Council, with support from WRAP.


The UK hospitality and food sector wastes one million tonnes of food every year, three quarters of which is still edible.

Cambridge Sustainable Food is helping restaurants, cafes and food outlets across the city to start saving by measuring and cutting their food waste as part of our ‘Taste Not Waste’ programme.


Funded by Cambridge City Council and with assistance from waste experts, WRAP, we have developed resources and guidance to help your business cut food waste and costs.

Through reducing food waste, businesses can reap the benefits of higher profits, increasing customer numbers, new PR opportunities, and legal compliance.
