Food Waste

See what actions the Bristol Good Food Partnership are prioritising to tackle food waste here in the city and check in on the latest progress updates.

What’s it about?

In Bristol, every 1.3 seconds, enough edible food is wasted to make a meal, and yet people across the city are experiencing hunger and food insecurity. Meanwhile, food sent to landfill and resources wasted in growing food for cities like ours that never gets eaten is fuelling the climate crisis. With around 80% of all food-consumption taking place in urban areas, cities like Bristol have a really important role to play in preventing food waste.

Food waste and packaging waste is minimised. 

Outcome 1: Household food waste going into black bins has reduced to under 10% 

Outcome 2: Commercial food waste reduces and the volume of food waste recycled increases 

Outcome 3: The volume of food surplus redistributed increases  

Outcome 4: The volume of single use packaging reduces and reusable cups are the norm

These priorities are taken from Bristol Good Food 2030: A One City Framework for Action which aims to transform the city’s food system within this decade, supporting its ambitions on health, climate, biodiversity and social justice.
