The Business Benefits of Food Waste Management

The increase in the wealth of the general population has been combined with a reduction in the price of food over the last 40 years.

Why Stricter Food Waste Recycling Could Change the Way You Work and How Bioganix Can Help You Adapt

Right now, there isn’t much in the way of government regulation when it comes to the recycling of food waste. In the UK, the rule essentially boils down to the fact you have to dispose of food waste hygienically. That’s pretty loose and open to a fair bit of interpretation. But this is set to change. According to OpenAccessGovernment.org, we’re looking at: “…possible implementation of stricter legislation in 2023 which will introduce mandatory separate food waste collections, with a targeted 75% recycling rate by...
