New research conducted by Lime Venue Portfolio, in partnership with BCD Meetings and Events, has underlined the need for the event industry to take a lead in tackling food waste. The findings form part of Chapter One of the Beyond Food Report, which is out today, and puts a spotlight on the issue and encourages organisers to take steps to address it.

The research surveyed over 60 event organizers and showed that:

  • just under a third of event professionals admit to throwing away at least 15% of the food they commission at events.
  • 18% said it was closer to 20%.
  • 2% claimed that the amount exceeded 20%.

“Every day we hear about food shortages in the world, and we should be all playing our part to reduce food waste wherever we can. Event organizers are well placed to advise and support clients, caterers and venues with their food orders and work with them to tackle this issue,” commented Jo Austin, sales director, Lime Venue Portfolio.
