Go further this Food Waste Action Week

Food Waste Action Week is an important reminder for the catering and hospitality sector to be more conscious about the impact food waste has on the environment.

But it’s also a great opportunity to think about the sustainability of the wider supply chain, and in particular how to make more of old or surplus catering equipment.

While reducing food waste is undeniably important, the immediate neighbour – the equipment food is mixed, cooked, or packed in – is often overshadowed. This has a clear impact on the environment, but also leads businesses to miss out on a financial return because surplus assets are being unnecessarily scrapped.

Reuse expert Ramco is urging ceda members to contribute to the circular economy by finding new homes for unwanted second-hand items. Why? Because end of lease doesn’t mean end of life.

With a proven track record of success, Ramco has helped businesses such as Mitchells & Butlers, Grattes, Parts Town UK and BaxterStorey to find value in surplus assets sitting idle and give them a new lease of life.

To see what value your unwanted catering equipment might hold, take a look at Ramco’s ‘Value Finder’ tool for inspiration, or contact the team who can help assess your assets: https://www.ramco.co.uk/value-finder.
