We don't send any of our food waste to landfill.
We are proud supporters of Love Food Hate Waste

Waste Hierarchy

We aim to prevent food waste in the first place by managing stock, maximising shelf-life and applying reductions to products close to the end of their life. We direct some of our surplus food to charities and organisations that redistribute food. Where these steps fail we send all food waste to anaerobic digestion where it is turned into energy. None of our food waste goes to landfill.
