Defra call for evidence on waste Prevention Programme for England

May 2013

FDF members work to minimise food and packaging wastes under our Five-fold Environmental Ambition. These voluntary targets have helped to deliver large scale reductions in food and packaging waste since 2007. In meeting our landfill target our members' first priority is to prevent waste arisings at their production sites and where this cannot be achieved to drive waste up the hierarchy.

When considering what is realistic to achieve over the next 10 years in terms of reductions in food waste and packaging account needs to be taken of the continued expected to rise in single person households, and both population and economic growth over the period trends which are likely to impact material usage.
