Working together for a better world...
There is panic buying throughout the world. Helen Dickinson, the chief executive of the British Retail Consortium, said at the daily Downing Street briefing that there was plenty of food in the supply chain. The issue is around people and lorries.
She added there was £1bn more food in people’s houses than there was three weeks ago. “So we should make sure we eat some of it.”
WRAP estimated annual food waste arisings within UK households, hospitality & foodservice, food manufacture, retail and wholesale sectors in 2018 at around 9.53 million tonnes , 70% of which was intended to be consumed by people (30% being the ‘inedible parts’). This had a value of over £19 billion a year, and would be associated with more than 25 million tonnes of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
