    WRAP Cymru

    When taking into account food procurement, labour, utilities and waste management costs it is estimated that food waste represents a cost to the Healthcare Sector of £230 million each year, or £1,900 per tonne.  Prevention, therefore, offers a real opportunity for hospitals to make financial and environmental savings, and improve the catering service they provide to patients.

    Challenging the way the catering service is delivered and utilising the combined experiences of catering, nursing and dietitian teams (“the Power of 3”) can identify waste prevention opportunities. This can include behavioural changes such as avoiding the preparation of ‘just in case meals’ or more fundamental changes such as revising a menu or the food ordering system.

    WRAP’s bespoke resources to help you reduce costs are available via our Health Sector webpages or for further information please contact hugh.jones@wrap.org.uk .

    WRAP Cymru is part of WRAP, the circular economy experts.  Our work helps businesses, councils and householders prevent waste, recycle more and save money.  Visit the WRAP website to learn more.

    This work includes UK-wide food waste prevention programmes such as the Courtauld Commitment 2025 (C2025) for the grocery sector, and consumer behaviour change campaigns such as Love Food Hate Waste.

    The Vegan Society

    The Vegan Society was founded in November 1944 and we’ve made tremendous progress since.

    The society was first registered as a charity in August 1964 but its assets were later transferred to a new charity when it also became limited company in December 1979.  The definition of veganism and the charitable objects of the society were amended and refined over the years.  By winter 1988 this definition was in use – although the phrasing has changed slightly over the years – and remains so today.

    Soil Association Food for Life

    NHS Sustainability Day Campaign Membership Information

    Food for Life is a Soil Association initiative. It began life in 2003 and developed into an award winning national programme to transform school food culture, before extending to new sectors including hospitals thanks to funding from Big Lottery’s Wellbeing Fund.

    The Food for Life Hospitals programme supports and empowers NHS leaders to put a good food culture at the top of the agenda. Our support is designed to help NHS trusts create a better food experience and support a health promoting environment for patients, staff and visitors. Our support programmes include;

    • Food for Life Hospitals Network; providing a range of support and opportunities for shared learning for NHS trusts, including seminars, policy briefings and conferences
    • Reducing Food Waste Workshop; bringing multi-disciplinary teams together to examine and address food waste reduction in hospitals.
    • Food & Drink Strategy support; helping trusts develop a strategy with cross discipline input that frames a meaningful approach to creating a ‘good food’ environment in NHS trusts.

    Food for Life has extensive experience of working with up to 70 NHS trusts, and of contributing to the sector policy context. This has included membership of the DoH Hospital Food Standards Panel and its expert reference groups.

    PETA

    The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Foundation is a UK-based charity dedicated to establishing and protecting the rights of all animals.

    Like humans, animals are capable of suffering and have interests in leading their own lives; therefore, they are not ours to use – for food, clothing, experimentation, entertainment or any other reason. PETA and our affiliates around the world educate policymakers and the public about cruelty to animals and promote an understanding of the right of all animals to be treated with respect.

    PETA works through public education, research, legislation, special events, celebrity involvement and protest campaigns. PETA believes in non-violence and does not advocate or support actions in which anyone, human or non-human, is harmed. PETA is a charitable organisation that works to educate the public about the horrors of cruelty to animals through peaceful means.

    Depending on context, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals Foundation may be referred to as the “PETA Foundation”, “PETA UK”, or “PETA.” References to any campaign activities that occurred prior to October 2009 refer to activities undertaken by PETA Europe.
