FootprintChannel: Wasted on the Bottom-line
November 25, 2014
The correlation between waste and profit is still little understood. The perceived cost of changing processes, culture and product offerings and fear of alienating customers remain barriers to action.
Nobody can blame inaction on ignorance. We have heard endless stories......EU’s boost on recycling targets, House of Lords waste enquiries, half of food not used binned before we’ve even taken a bite, redistribution, collaboration, a third of food being wasted, 1.3 billion tonnes of food being lost to supply chain inefficiencies, food waste and animal feed, residual waste, resource efficiency guides, 1.3 billion wasted in the foodservice sectors, free waste audit schemes, roadmaps to zero waste...and these are just some of the headlines in Footprint. Food waste is undoubtedly one of the defining topics of our generation and our industry is on the front line. Why, though, are still so few businesses meaningfully and measurably tackling the problem?
The answer is that most business don’t believe they have a food waste problem. Profit is every business’s problem and thousands of UK businesses are literally wasting on the bottom line. It’s time to get tough and speak numbers!
FootprintChannel: Wasted on the Bottom-line’s objective is to quantify the profit the industry is wasting. We seek to determine how you evaluate the fiscal quantum impact waste is having on your bottom-line. We will explore innovations that are helping the industry tackle the problem and simple processes that you can apply to avoid profit going in the bin.
