Britain’s biggest private food manufacturer is proud to have joined an elite group of just 25 organisations in the world to unite on the global food waste campaign by becoming a ‘Friend of Champions 12.3’.
Champions 12.3 is a group of executives chaired by Dave Lewis, Tesco’s chief executive tasked with the target of halving food waste by 2030. The ‘Friend of Champions 12.3’ network is a group of organisations recognised for supporting the movement and making efforts toward reaching this target.
Ranjit Singh, President of Boparan Holdings Limited, said: “We believe there is a global responsibility to ensure that food suitable for human consumption is kept within the supply chain. With 8.4 million people in the UK struggling to put enough food on the table it is not acceptable that food is going to waste.
“At 2 Sisters we recognise there is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach to tackling this issue and we’ll therefore continue to look at a number of different initiatives across our operations to find opportunities for positive change.”
One way 2 Sisters has helped contribute towards the reduction of food waste is through their partnership with the food redistribution charity FareShare.
