Wrap – Food Waste In Primary Production In The UK.

Comments by Richard Harrow, chief executive of the British Frozen Food Federation:

“Today’s report from Wrap has highlighted the scale of food waste within our food production system.

“I firmly believe frozen has a vital role to play in waste reduction efforts. The freezing process is ‘nature’s pause button’ and allows surplus crops that have no market due to a bumper harvest or fluctuations in demand, to be preserved for later use.

“Research from Cranfield University shows increasing the production and consumption of frozen food in the UK could play a significant role in delivering the government’s 2020 and 2050 food security targets.

“Government, food producers and retailers recognise we have a huge problem that needs to be addressed and freezing is a significant part of the solution.”
