It’s Time to Take Unnecessary Food Waste off the Menu


Did you know that food waste contributes to climate change? In fact, 30% of man-made global greenhouse gases are created from the production and consumption of food, and there’s never been a better time to take a stand and stop it going to waste.

During Food Waste Action Week – taking place from 1st to 7th March 2021 – WRAP is calling on citizens and businesses of the UK to take action. We all have a role to play to value our food and stop it from being wasted.

At HIT Training, we’re passionate about reducing food waste. All of our apprenticeships and training courses focus on having a nose to tail or root to leaf approach to maximise every inch of an ingredient.

Nothing is ever wasted when our HIT Chef Academy Chefs are involved! They’re always looking for simple ways to use offcuts and leftovers – from creating delicious stocks (which can be frozen), to fermenting and preserving in-season veg for later in the year.

WRAP’s Guardians of Grub initiative highlights the issue of food waste in the hospitality sector and provides simple solutions to tackle it. They offer a range of tools to help businesses to monitor and reduce their food waste, which not only provides great cost savings, but provides essential environmental benefits too.

If you’re new to tackling wasted food, try the Guardian of Grub’s Cost Saving Calculator to see what you can save – it couldn’t be easier.
