Preventing Waste in the Healthcare sector

Hospital caterers can access free advice on how to tackle food waste by watching these four screencasts.

Produced by WRAP, and developed with the Hospital Caterers Association (HCA), these screencasts offer a step-by-step guide enabling hospital caterers to reduce food and associated packaging waste and to recycle more.

This screencast series will:

  • give an overview of waste in the healthcare sector;
  • identify food waste prevention opportunities;
  • provide advice to help healthcare facilities prevent food waste and realise the associated cost savings; and
  • introduce WRAP’s business support including tools and guidance available under WRAP’s Hospitality and Food Service Agreement.
