Food waste is a growing problem in Britain. Scotland has already banned food from their landfill sites and England looks set to go the same way. There are a lot of ways to deal with food waste, old fashioned composting, to newfangled anaerobic digestion, and quirky techniques, like growing mushrooms in coffee grounds.

At BPR Group we specialise in helping you to move your waste up the waste hierarchy, and (believe it or not!) where it’s possible to do so, away from recycling. At the top of the waste hierarchy is prevention. This is where the FoodWISE scheme comes in.

FoodWISE is a business growth programme run by the European Regional Development Fund. The programme offers free account management support for small and medium sized businesses and focuses on:

  • Improving green credentials
  • Diverting food waste from the waste stream

Currently, Brighton Paper Round are working with FoodWISE to provide free consultation, a range of service options and a combination of audit and best practice initiatives.

The benefits of the scheme are potentially huge and can be used to promote your business as an environmental champion.

We’re holding an event at The Open Market in Brighton where you can come and chat to us to find out more.

Keep an eye on our twitter feed "@PaperRoundBN1" for details on how to register to attend, or find out more by emailing brighton@paper-round.co.uk or calling 01273 685 628.
