Feedback launches legal challenge to decision not to require food waste reporting
Food industry environmental campaigners have launched a legal challenge to the government’s decision to stick with a voluntary system for food waste measurement and reporting.
Feedback says the food industry should be made to report how much food is going to waste. The campaign group says the costs of such a system would prove cheaper for shoppers and dramatically cut food waste which currently amounts to at least 9.5 million tonnes a year. More than two-thirds of that waste is edible and 165,000 tonnes is suitable for redistribution.
