A resource map outlining where and how much meat and fish – as well as it associated packaging – is wasted in the supply chain is to be developed in a bid to cut all three and save cash for industry players.

The Waste and Resource Action Programme (WRAP) and Envirowise are leading the research which will also look to identify the amount of water consumed and disposed of during meat and fish processing. The initiative will measure the cost and carbon footprint of this waste.
