Welcome to the FoodSave Resource Library.

FoodSave follows the principles of the Food Waste Pyramid. Firstly, we want to promote waste avoidance by helping businesses reduce their food waste and put surplus food to good use. Secondly, we provide advice and support on waste management, which includes disposing of unavoidable food waste more responsibly through processes such as composting or anaerobic digestion.

The aim of our Resource Library is to provide businesses with a quick reference source of information about how to avoid and manage food waste. We’ve combined all the good insights we’ve collected on the FoodSave project along with useful tips and information from other organisations.
