Food Waste Prevention Training

According to WRAP, one in every six meals produced by UK hospitality businesses ends up in the bin.

‘Waste Prevention Training’ has been designed for chefs, food buyers in hospitality and food service businesses and employees working in food service environments to help understand where and why food waste arises and calculate the costs of food waste to your business.

This course has been designed to ensure kitchen and food and beverage teams are able to calculate the costs of food waste to your business, understand where and why food waste arises in your business and how to prevent it. Delegates will also learn how to monitor progress and assess the impact of waste prevention programmes.
