Food waste is a huge global issue, occurring at all stages of food production, from the fields and farms to the factories and in the home. More than half of the food waste generated by the manufacturing and retail sectors is avoidable, according to the Waste and Resources Action Programme.

We bring technical expertise and experience in food and beverage processing and formulation, coupled with market assessment and strategic partnership capabilities, which put us in a strong position to illuminate the path to a sustainable value proposition via innovative technical solutions coupled with novel routes to market.

One potential solution to the challenge of food waste, food upcycling, is growing in prominence but it requires the consideration and evaluation of three core factors: the supply chain, the consumer and sustainability. Taking a systematic approach helps identify which strategies are most viable and where partnerships might prove most beneficial. We are working with clients to help them understand the options for implementing such processes to reduce waste, cut costs, and establish new products and ingredients.
