Birmingham, West Midlands -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/20/2015 -- A recent report has highlighted that The Consumer Goods Forum (CGF) has announced its commitment to tackling the issue of global food waste, aiming to half the waste produced within the operations of its 400 manufacture and retail members by 2025. This emphasizes the scale of the effort being taken to increase efficiency and reduce the amount of potentially fit food being thrown away. Britain's 'Love Food, Hate Waste' campaign is a further example of focus upon sustainability, buying and eating habits.
The issue of wasted food has received increased publicity in recent years – with a number of incentives for households to reduce their output. Food waste from homes is a significant problem, not only in terms of the cost and loss of produce, but also added issues such as vermin and more waste on landfill. Yet the key reasons for such high levels of wastage often go unaddressed. For example, the poor storage of food items often leads to spoilage and them being discarded before they are even used or cooked. It is anticipated that in light of the CGF announcement, more measures will be encouraged at a domestic level, to reduce food wastage of this kind.
