The Campaign for the Abolition of Food Waste is supported by the UK government

as well as the UK public ...

4th December 2017

The Co-operative Supermarket chain is to sell food up to a month past it's best-before date to slash waste

From today, shoppers at the Co-op's 125 East of England stores will be able to buy out of date products for just 10p (this does not include products with a 'Use-by' date).

To what extent, if at all, do you think this is a good way to tackle food waste? Do you think other supermarkets might follow this idea?

• On 1st August 2016 the EU Commission published the composition of their Platform on Food Losses and Food Waste.

Part of the 2015 EU Action Plan for Circular Economy, the Platform is to bring together 70 member organisations, both from the public and private sectors, in order to maximise the contribution of all actors to halve per capita food waste by 2030. The Platform had its launch meeting on 29 November 2016

• Do you know of any spare land for an eco-community restaurant? within London, and PREFERABLY to the East of London?

The Film Café Co-op is seeking a vacant plot of land to lease or purchase for a café and vegetarian / vegan restaurant. We will build a load bearing straw bale structure for the restaurant and so hope to set an example of a sustainable eco-venue

Their sustainable eco restaurant will also be a base to run training courses in healthy and nutritious cooking, within everyone's budget, and to screen films on a range of subjects especially those made by women in the local community

Do you have spare land or could your recommend a site for us to purchase or rent?

Please do drop Sarah MacGregor a line with your suggestions
