The Institute of Grocery Distribution (IGD) has started a campaign named “Working on Waste” in cooperation with the Waste Resource Action Programme (Wrap), in response to the growing concern on the quantity of food waste disposed from UK households. The initiative aims to approach about 650,000 people who work at 107 food and grocery companies in October by sharing tips and ideas on how to reduce food waste using meal planners, waste diaries and leftovers recipes. Based on the figures published by Wrap in June, Britons discard about
£2.4 billion of opened and untouched food in a year.
