          Focus on frozen to

          help meet food waste

          targets, says BFFF

          Richard Harrow, CEO of the Bri ish Frozen Food Federa ion (BFFF), is urging ichard Harrow, CEO of the Bri ish Frozen Food Federa ion (BFFF), is urging
          government to highlight the role frozen can play in helping it achieve its
          ‘Step up to the Plate’ food waste targets.
            Speaking a„ter the recent „lagship symposium event in London, which was
          co-hosted by environment secretary Michael Gove, Harrow said: “The scale of food waste in the UK is truly shocking
          and I „irmly believe frozen has a vital role to play in waste reduc…ion e„forts. Government has woken up to the fact the
          UK has a huge problem that needs to be „ixed but needs to start seeing frozen as a signi„icant part of the solu…ion.”
            Michael Gove agreed ac…ion was needed: “Every year, around 100,000 tonnes of readily available and perfectly
          edible food goes uneaten. It’s …ime to join together and ‘Step up to the Plate’ to stop good food going to waste. We
          must end the moral, economic and environmental scandal of food waste.”
