Food Waste Recycling Action Plan shows government recognising value of food waste

Responding to the launch of the Food Waste Recycling Action Plan at UK AD & Biogas 2016, Charlotte Morton, Chief Executive of the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association (ADBA), said:

“The Food Waste Recycling Action Plan has been a positive, collaborative process between government, WRAP, trade associations, AD operators and local authorities. It sets out a series of practical actions which will help increase the capture and recycling of food waste which cannot be eaten.

“The AD industry is delighted that Defra Minister Rory Steward has engaged in the plan, and welcomes his wider recognition that food waste policy is important for the UK’s economy and carbon budgets.

“ADBA is pleased to have been part of the steering group which has produced the FWRAP, and looks forward to continuing to work with partners to deliver the actions it has set out.”

The Food Waste Recycling Action Plan is available via the WRAP website, http://www.wrap.org.uk/food-waste-recycling-pr.

UK AD & Biogas is the biggest annual event in the AD industry, and is organised by the Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association. The 2016 event attracted exhibitors and attendees from almost 50 countries, and received over 3,000 visitors across the two days.
