Too Good To Waste was launched by The Sustainable Restaurant Association in London in 2011. The SRA is a not-for-profit membership organisation helping restaurants to become more sustainable and diners make more sustainable choices when eating out. They assist their member restaurants to source food more sustainably, manage resources more efficiently and meet their social responsibilities.
The Foodwise project led by Oxfordshire County Council aims to help 250 SMEs, located across the South East, who are working in or serving/supplying the hospitality sector to make cost savings and improve their environmental track record on purchasing, preparing and disposing of food.
A ‘cradle to grave’ approach will be taken, looking at smarter methods for the procurement of food products, sustainable practices in the kitchen and the recycling of food waste to create a ‘closed loop’ activity.
