WRAP UK receives $826k to tackle global food waste

The UK’s Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has been awarded $826,000 (€751,970) scale-up funding to “supercharge” action on global food loss.

WRAP’s food waste reduction partnership FLAWLESS (Halving Food Loss and Waste by Leveraging Economic Systems) is among nine public-private partnerships to have received scale-up funding from Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030  (P4G).

FLAWLESS sets out to drive action on global food waste and loss by mobilising the financial sector to factor in both financial and environmental performance in their lending and building on existing partnerships in WRAP Global’s three partner countries: Indonesia, South Africa, and Mexico.
