The latest data estimates that in the UK, 10 million tonnes of food is wasted from the time it leaves the farm to being consumed and 60% of this is avoidable. We believe this is simply unacceptable.
Creating the change we need to successfully tackle food waste in the long term isn’t easy and requires industry-wide commitment and collaboration. That’s why in 2016 we joined retailers, manufacturers, local authorities and others across the industry in becoming a signatory to WRAP’s Courtauld Commitment 2025 to work collectively to reduce food and drink waste by 20%.
Our food waste
Every day we work hard to minimise any waste in our business – it makes business sense, and food waste is no exception.
For many years we have been refining our processes to accurately order the food we sell and ensure we minimise food surplus as much as possible. In addition, we offer customers products nearing the expiry date at a reduced price
As a major supermarket, inevitably there are instances where we are unable to sell all the food that has been delivered to our stores. For us, it’s important that this food surplus is redistributed to good causes. That’s why, in 2017, we launched our national food redistribution programme called the Feed It Back network.
