Quorn joins the fight against food waste

Quorn joins the fight against food waste

At Quorn we care a lot about our health, but we also care about our planet. That’s why we’re taking new steps to help reduce food waste.

Despite an improvement in recent years, we throw away a huge 7 million tonnes of food and drink a year in UK households alone. Worst of all, over half of it is perfectly good to eat.

Not only is this costing us a fortune (a hefty £12.5 billion a year) -  but it has a massive negative impact on the environment. 

To do our bit, Quorn are now part of IGD’s Working on Waste Campaign. Which, since launching in 2014, has engaged with nearly 2 million people nationwide, raising employee awareness of household food waste while sharing tips on how to reduce it. 

We have also installed new recycling bins at our head office to further our commitment to recycling and encourage our employees to think more about how they dispose of their waste.

Louise Needham, Sustainability Manager, Quorn said: “We are proud to be able to contribute to this debate about food across the supply chain – and how to avoid it even becoming “waste”. Collaboration is very important to enable systemic change that will help all food businesses to make the more sustainable choice.”

How can you help?                                      

1.3 million tonnes of food is wasted every year simply because we serve too much of it.

With the right planning, prepping, and storing - you could save food, money and lessen your impact on the environment.

If every household got on board, that’s an environmental impact equivalent to taking 1 in 4 cars off the road. Plus, we’d save a huge £700 per family, every year!
