Aldi and SWRnewstar win waste2zero award

We’re delighted to announce that Aldi with SWRnewstar won the ‘Best Waste Project Communication and Stakeholder Engagement Award’ last night at Footprint’s waste2zero event.

 

The waste2zero awards provide a platform to showcase excellence and recognise best practice from across the foodservice industry.

 

The management and prevention of waste has changed dramatically over the last few years from being something of an elephant in the room to a core business discipline.

 

Waste, however, remains endemic and one of the biggest challenges to the foodservice and hospitality industry. Food waste, in particular, has emerged as one of the defining sustainability issues of our modern system, whilst packaging and plastics present a perpetual and colossal problem.

 

The winning entry outlined how the combination of site based training, detailed reporting and closed loop recycling solutions support Aldi’s waste reduction strategy as signatories of the Courtauld Commitment.

 

The win is even sweeter because Bristol Airport with SWR won in the same category last year. Stakeholder engagement is a central part of the work SWRnewstar’s account management team focus on with customers, and particularly with individual sites, to increase recycling rates. It’s fantastic for these results to be recognised.
