Food waste report 2023

Today sees publication of our latest Food Service Report with accompanying fact sheetCompiled from data gathered from IFWC members’ sites across Europe’s hospitality and food service sectors in 2022, the Report shows positive progress.

A total of 1,081 member sites reporting reliable data have collectively recorded an impressive 23% reduction in food waste since 2019. They are already halfway to achieving our ambitious goal to halve food waste by 2025. Whilst these sites represent only a small percentage of our members’ total operations (5%), they have clearly demonstrated how food waste can be cut significantly through consistent monitoring.

This new 2023 Reports show the excellent progress reporting sites are making – we now urgently need more IFWC member sites and more businesses to step up.
