Food wastage

8 July 2008
Gordon Brown told us this week that we must reduce our food wastage. The government has estimated UK consumers spend an average of £420 per household each year on food that is then thrown away.
 
It said 5.9 million tonnes of waste is from packaging, and of that, 4.7 million tonnes is food packaging.

Have you seen examples of waste in the corporate environment? Do suppliers overload you with packaging that ends up being thrown away?
