WRAP and UK food businesses have agreed common guidelines for measuring and reporting on food surplus and waste, consistent with the global Food Loss and Waste Accounting and Reporting Standard (FLW Standard).

These have been produced in support of the UK Food Waste Reduction Roadmap – to help the UK meet the Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 12.3 target to halve food waste by 2030.

This document should be used in conjunction with the wider UK Guidelines. It provides additional recommendations for fresh produce businesses (growers, packers, processors, service providers), based on the specific operational considerations and challenges relevant to this sector. In addition there are some simplified guidelines that Leaf have developed for growers called ‘Food Waste Matters’.
