Industry’s waste elite announced at the 2021 waste2zero Awards in association with Bunzl Catering Supplies

The 2021 waste2zero awards were presented at an exclusive dinner held at the famous In & Out in London’s St.James’s Square tonight.

As climate statements come thick and fast from COP26 this week, it is clear that waste remains endemic and one of the biggest global challenges today. In the out of home sector, arguably the two biggest areas of waste are food and packaging. Food is still wasted at every stage of the supply chain – much of it before it even reaches the table - whilst packaging - a necessary evil for the food industry in its current form - creates its own environmental issues with production and disposal.

The waste2zero awards recognise excellence in Waste Management and Prevention in the out of home sector and specifically give the waste industry a platform to showcase best practice and initiatives in this vital area.

An elite panel of judges, experts in waste, packaging and sustainability, reviewed innovations and initiatives from organisations large and small in areas such as resource management, closed loop, recycling and food redistribution. Clear leadership is evident from some organisations in the sector who are demonstrating operational strategies that reduce waste impacts to the environment up and down supply chains.

The 2021 Winners and Runners up in their chosen categories are as follows.
