Description

Food waste prevention training workshop

A free half-day workshop for businesses in Orkney that produce food waste, including cafés, hotels, retailers, restaurants and manufacturers.

Experts in food waste prevention will provide practical tips and tried and tested techniques that will help you go beyond basic compliance and simple waste management. They will show you how you can prevent food waste occurring in the first place so that you can slash costs and maximise your business’s profitability.

You will also get the chance to learn from other businesses in Orkney that have already taken action to reduce food waste, and hear how their businesses have benefited as a result.

Plus speak to the team behind the recent Good To Go pilot and find out how you can get involved with your free starter pack.

And remember, food waste may be costing your organisation a lot more than you realise. It’s more than just the payment you give to your waste contractor to empty your bin – estimates put the true cost of waste at 10 times your waste contract bill.

Register now to reduce your food waste and save money. Followed by networking lunch and drop in clinic.


Who should attend?

This event is a must for managers, directors and owners of SMEs who are responsible for business improvement, competitiveness and sustainability.
