Ground-breaking research

Underpinning all our work is understanding where to direct our efforts to reduce food waste, tackle plastic pollution and mitigate the environmental impact of clothing and textiles.

Our research into these areas helps us to decide where to intervene to achieve the greatest impact. It will also encompass practical advice and guidance.

How our research helps

Our guidance on food past its 'best before date' highlighted that the food remained safe and can be perfectly good to eat, helped redistribution charities to increase the amount of surplus food available for those in need.
