Bid to cut food waste from pubs, restaurants and cafes across Torbay
9:25am Friday 7th September 2012 in News
Pubs, restaurants and cafes across Torbay are being invited to team up with Torbay Council in a new initiative aimed at cutting down on food waste.
The first 100 businesses that sign up will get all the containers and marketing materials free of charge.
Deputy Mayor Cllr David Thomas, whose portfolio includes strategic responsibility for waste disposal, said: "Torbay will be leading the way with this important initiative. It fits in well with the national 'Love Food Hate Waste' campaign.
"It is important we find new ways of ensuring that good food doesn't go to waste, and I am sure that this initiative due to be launched in early October will be well supported by Bay businesses and their customers."
Businesses interested in signing up for the scheme are invited to contact Carol Arthur on 01803 207744 for further details, or by email at email@example.com
