Vision 2020: UK roadmap to zero food waste to landfill. Launches Today.

Did you know that in the UK we produce 14.8m tonnes of waste food, and that nearly half of this ends up in landfill sites?

Resource constraints, food poverty, carbon targets and the massive cost to the UK economy, are just some of the reasons this issue needs to be urgently addressed.

Today see’s the official press launch of Vision 2020: UK roadmap to zero food waste to landfill.

The recommendations presented in the report are underpinned by a strong environmental and economic case for achieving zero food waste to landfill. The roadmap will clearly outline how this could be achieved.

Our client ReFood were the founders of Vision 2020. In February 2011, they launched a manifesto entitled ‘Vision 2020: The future of the food waste recycling sector’, which set out their ambition to eradicate food waste from landfill by the end of the decade. Inspired by the debate generated by that first report, ReFood brought together key industry stakeholders as the Vision 2020 Visionary Panel, chaired by former Secretary of State for the Environment Lord Deben, to help shape a viable roadmap to turn this exciting vision into reality. This roadmap launched today is the culmination of that work.

Vision 2020
We’re proud to have been involved with the project over the last few months, developing the Vision 2020 brand identity and designing and producing the roadmap and the official Vision 2020 website due for launch later this month.
