2018 waste2zero Winnners crowned

The good and the great of the foodservice waste prevention and management industries, gathered for the 2018 waste2zero Awards Dinner - headline sponsored by Bunzl - last night at the In & Out in London’s St.James's Square.

The management and prevention of waste has changed dramatically over the last few years from being something of an elephant in the room to a core business discipline.

Waste, however, remains endemic and one of the biggest challenges to the foodservice and hospitality industry. Food waste, in particular, has emerged as one of the defining sustainability issues of our modern food system, whilst packaging and other non-food waste presents a perpetual and colossal problem.

Now in its second year, the objective of waste2zero - the first awards of its kind in the sector - is to specifically give the out of home industry a platform to showcase best practice and recognise excellence in this vital area.

Our congratulations to all finalists. Those receiving applause were as follows:
