BFFF champions sustainability with launch of specialist interest group
The United Nation’s Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) form the basis of many targets adopted by governments and companies around the world. The specialist interest group aims to develop BFFF policy and guidance to help members work towards the sustainable development goals.
Richard Harrow, chief executive of the BFFF, said: “One of the consequences of the pandemic is a renewed focus on sustainability within the food industry.
“The sustainability agenda today is different to five years ago, and it will develop further over the coming five years. It is therefore vital we help members understand the narrative as it evolves.
“One of the key benefits of frozen food is helping both consumers and professional kitchens reduce food waste, a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.
“We therefore need, as an industry, to promote the concept of the Climate Balance, and this can only be done if the industry works together. Only by taking a collaborative approach will the UK reach its net zero targets by 2050.”
