Your business is food

CUTTING FOOD WASTE is the best way to save money and boost your business profits… and it’s easy.

Our free program provides information, advice and resources to reduce the amount of food you throw away in your business.

How it works:

      1. Do a FOOD WASTE REVIEW to work out where food is being wasted (during preparation, storage or from customers plates)
      2. Develop an ACTION PLAN to reduce food waste
      3. Celebrate SUCCESS with a follow-up review
      4. PROMOTE your achievements to staff and customers

The Your Business is Food program step-by-step tips will help you identify where to cut costs and provide practical solutions to reduce food waste and save money.

Contact us to take part in this FREE program and receive face to face support and useful resources such as coasters and take away stickers.
