The food industry alone in Britain produces 200,000 tonnes of excess food every year. Currently, companies believe it easier to take the surplus to landfill or to anaerobic digestion plants, but the government’s support would be beneficial in encouraging them to make the correct distinction between food that is still edible and waste destined for AD plants.
