Food waste

The Anthesis team is a global leader when it comes to food waste and driving sustainability throughout the food supply chain, advising a broad range of worldwide organisations and policy makers.

The international understanding and response to the scale of the food lost and waste challenge is gathering pace, with many of the key players in the food production and retail industry beginning to address the issue within their business and supply chain.

It’s evident that retailers and suppliers can gain many benefits when addressing food waste - from securing commercial advantages and identifying new business opportunities, to meeting the demands of their customers and mitigating any reputational risks.

How Anthesis can help you with food waste

Anthesis’ intricate knowledge and technical expertise has allowed us to play a revolutionary role in tackling this challenge. Our team includes internationally recognised food waste prevention experts, enabling us to take a lead on a variety of areas, such as the development of food waste metrics, change management programmes, monitoring and reporting.

We have recently advised Governments and other policy-led organisations on the development of voluntary and legislative approach to managing food as well as playing an instrumental part in developing the global Food Loss and Waste (FLW) Accounting and Reporting Standard in collaboration with the World Resources Institute.

Our unique experience puts us in prime position to help and support other organisations, including those in the grocery retail, hospitality and catering, and food and drink manufacturing sectors.
