In the circular economy end of lease doesn’t mean end of life
Food Waste Action Week 2023 will take place 6 – 12 March, and is an important reminder for the catering sector to be ever more conscious about the impact food waste has on the environment.
Circular economy specialist Ramco encourages catering outlets to go one step further.
Looking at the supply chain as a whole and not only reducing food waste, but also avoiding catering equipment going to landfill.
Whilst reducing food waste is undeniably important, the immediate neighbour – the equipment food is mixed, cooked, or packed in – is often overshadowed, leading businesses to miss out on financial return because surplus assets are being unnecessarily scrapped.
From slightly damaged but fully functioning goods to used products – Ramco’s mission is to find new homes for these items, not only contributing to the circular economy but also generating financial benefits for catering businesses.
In anticipation of Food Waste Action Week 2023 Ramco’s Foodservice Business Development Consultant Paul Fieldhouse said: “Reducing food packaging and waste has been on the cards for a while, yet there’s little regard for making improvements further along the food supply chain, such as recycling surplus catering equipment. For Ramco it’s all about reusing perfectly good equipment and extending the lifespan – end of lease doesn’t mean end of life.”
