Is your food business interested in reducing food waste?
If you are a food processor, food retailer or in the food service industry in Ireland and would like to reduce your food waste costs, Savour Food can help you.
Currently, an estimated one third of all food produced for human consumption is wasted. In Ireland, we generate approximately 1 million tonnes of food waste every year. Food waste is a global issue, but it is also a significant problem for Irish businesses.
Savour Food is a food waste reduction initiative for business. Online resources, consultancy and seminars are available to businesses free of charge.
This programme is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine from the Department’s Rural Innovation and Development Fund.
