Deadline tomorrow to register for free help with food waste reduction – which could save you £10,000


Hospitality businesses in the Greater Glasgow area could save up to £10,000 by focussing on reducing food waste and an initiative called Hospitality Zero aims to help.  However you must note interest by tomorrow 25th February.

The Hospitality Zero pilot project organised in partnership with Zero Waste Scotland and Scottish Enterprise aims to help to operators identify priority actions specific to the business to implement food waste reduction measures, many of them low or no-cost measures.

This is a pilot project aimed at businesses within the Glasgow City area and those who sign up are required to measure and monitor their food waster for a month. Equipment will be provided to collate detailed data around their stock waste, plate waste and prep waste.

Participants will meet with a consultant – paid for through the project – who will give support on monitoring and advice on food waste reduction, create an action plan and give recommendations for measures to take, including changes in operations or behaviours, as well as identifying any equipment that would support waste reduction (e.g. vac pack machine, oil filtration system).

To take part email

The Hospitality Zero project is being delivered on behalf of the Scottish Government by VisitScotland with development and delivery input from Scottish Enterprise and Zero Waste Scotland.
