The Government remains committed to tackling food waste. Following further engagement with stakeholders the Secretary of State has decided to re-examine how best to secure the benefits of food waste reporting, including mandatory measures. We now intend to gather further evidence and re-consider all options on improving food waste reporting for large businesses using the latest available data.
