Pilot scheme to reduce food waste launched by Dundee restaurant boss

Adam Newith, owner of Broughty Ferry’s Tayberry restaurant,  has thrown his backing behind a pilot project which aims to reduce the amount of food waste thrown way.

If the two-year scheme, which is in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland, proves successful it could be expanded elsewhere.

Project leaders have enlisted his help in an effort to help them reach the Scottish Government’s goal of reducing food waste by 33% by 2025. A regional food waste officer will work with small and micro businesses, schools, colleges, universities and community groups across the city, passing on advice and information to help them meet targets.

Zero waste Scotland is largely funded by the Scottish government and works with businesses, the public sector, local authorities, community groups and industry bodiesw to help boost recycling rates and reduce all kinds of waste.
