The UK's top grocery retailers, brands and manufacturers have committed to an industry-wide food waste reduction objective for the first time. This will be delivered under WRAP's (Waste & Resources Action Programme) Love Food Hate Waste campaign. Signatories of the Courtauld Commitment - a voluntary agreement led by WRAP - have agreed to work together to help reduce the amount of food the nation's householders throw away by 155,000 tonnes by 2010, against a 2008 baseline. Action will be focused on identifying solutions and will examine how areas such as labelling, pack size range, storage advice and packaging designed to keep the food fresher for longer can all help to prevent household food waste.
