Bioganix Offers A New Food Waste Collection Service

Food waste is a major issue for restaurants, pubs, and cafes. Indeed, hospitality accounts for almost half of all food waste, with the equivalent of 320 million meals being thrown away by cafes and restaurants each year. This takes a massive toll on the environment, with the 3.3 billion tonnes of generated carbon dioxide accelerating climate change. However, Bioganix is making a positive difference in offering our food waste collection service to hospitality businesses across Lincolnshire.
