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.
The scheme will also look to highlight waste hot spots and produce good practice
guides on how to tackle them. The meat and fish industries have been targeted
because of the higher greenhouse gas emission linked to their production.
