Taste Not Waste
WHAT IS IT
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.
We aim to demonstrate the benefits for businesses committing to reducing food waste, such as higher profits, increasing customer numbers, new PR opportunities, and legal compliance.
In February 2018, Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) partnered with us to promote a university-wide food waste campaign: ‘Food Waste: Sort It Out!’
ARU has already made great progress, offering vegetarian and vegan menu options, using plant-based disposables instead of plastic, providing staff and students a 15p discount on hot drinks if they bring their own mug, and selling ARU-branded Keep-Cups.
