Trifocal is an EU LIFE funded programme run in partnership with London Waste and Recycling Board (LWARB), the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) and Groundwork London. Trifocal has 11 replication locations across Europe where lessons learnt and best practice is shared (

The primary objectives of Trifocal are to reduce food waste, promote healthy and sustainable eating and increase the amount of inedible food waste being recycled. The programme has worked with communities, schools, businesses and households all of which is being evaluated and best practice and materials will be added to a resource bank.  The Project ends on 31 January 2020.

The resource bank will be available for 5 years beyond the end of the project. A no-deal Brexit would not affect London and other cities accessing the resource bank.
