Get Ready for the New Waste Laws with Wrapmaster

Get Ready for the New Waste Laws with Wrapmaster®

21st March 2024

Welsh Hospitality Urged to tackle the Food Waste Challenge and Save in the Process.
Law changes 6th April 2024.

Wrapmaster® is encouraging chefs and operators to get ready for the new waste laws. With the 6th April 2024 deadline fast approaching for Wales – and England the 31st March 2026 – the countdown is on for food businesses to tackle their food waste challenge and avoid extra costs.

From the 6th April 2024, all hospitality businesses in Wales (except hospitals) will need to separate their food wastage from general waste, as well as other recyclable waste, and send it for recycling. They will no longer be permitted to send their food waste to landfill or incineration and there will be a total ban on sending food waste to sewer.

With 97% of chefs stating that Wrapmaster® has helped them reduce their use of food wrap in the kitchen, the ultimate chef wrap system is helping operators to minimise costs ahead of the new UK food waste laws, with a proven 20% material saving vs cardboard cutter boxes .

Adrian Brown, Managing Director, Cofresco Foodservice explains:

“As the saying goes ‘An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure’ and this couldn’t be truer considering the new food waste laws coming into Wales. Taking control now and managing your food waste will pay off in the long run and we’re encouraging hospitality businesses to review their processes. We all know that wrapping ingredients significantly extends shelf life and helps prevent valuable food from going to waste, but what you use to wrap will impact that cost to your business too – and this is where Wrapmaster® is proven to help”.

As the ultimate chef wrap system, Wrapmaster® protects and preserves ingredients effectively and hygienically, as well as cutting overall food wrap usage and costs. It’s this simple swap back-of-house that has led to users making a 20% reduction in material waste.

Adrian continues:

“Three in every four chefs use Wrapmaster® – and for good reason! Our systems give kitchens the sustainable, cost-effective, and practical solution they need when it comes to wrapping and protecting food. Wherever you are in the country, hospitality shouldn’t ignore the countdown to reduce waste, now is the time to make a simple switch that will have a big impact on your businesses and the environment before the deadlines hit.”
